• Who dealt the race card first and was it justified?
Strategy Session was with Roland Martin, Tara Wall and David Gergen. Did anyone catch Roland anchoring Campbell's hour? He did a wonderful job. The more I watch Roland the more I appreciate him.
• The problem Obama still has with voters who believe that he is a Muslim. (Gary Tuchman reporting)
• Exxon Mobile's obscene profits
• The Florida Congressman who lives in Maryland, not Florida. (John Zarrella reporting)
• The Rockefeller abduction of his 7 year old daughter. (Erica Hill reporting...yea EH is in the house!)

I did a fast read through of the Live Blog, from Thursday night, and found a comment posted by David Gergen very interesting. This is a smart man and I just wish someone in the Obama camp would take note. Here is the second paragraph of his entry, which is the one that caught my eye.
The only thing I would like to re-emphasize is this: if I were advising Obama, I would argue strenuously that he has to think seriously again about Hillary Clinton on the ticket. If she truly adds 6-8 points to his total — as one recent poll shows — that could make a crucial difference in a close election. It’s an old rule in politics that before you can become a statesman, you first have to win the election. So, I would say that whatever his personal preferences, he should take a hard, hard look (It is worth remembering that JFK had no love for LBJ — and Bobby really disliked him — but putting LBJ on the ticket was the key to victory.)
