Can I just say how much I hate the way CNN handles election nights any more? Why do Jake Tapper and Dana Bash have to have their own table, segments? If they want to participate, put them at the CNN table on the panel. It makes for choppy coverage and way to much CNN opinion.

I was very disappointed that Anderson and other CNN people didn't call out the Republican's on the panel saying that Lamb was basically a Republican and claiming that the Democrats are the party of Bernie Sanders who is not even a Democrat as much as CNN likes to treat him like one and Elizabeth Warren doesn't speak for or make up the whole of the party. Connor Lamb was pro-life, but said he respected a woman's right to chose; was pro-second amendment, but agreed there was a need for tougher background checks, etc.

Also, something you didn't hear on CNN last night, health care was the number on issue with voters in PA18 yesterday. Did anyone at CNN do their homework or were they sticking to the Republican talking points last night? Don Lemon had a much better panel. They should have been on the prime time hours. Instead we were subjected to Rick Santorum and Jason Miller to repeat Trump talking points.

I don't look for a solid Democratic panel, but I do look for a balanced one with smart panelists that can answer the questions asked and moderators that don't allow them to pivot but force them to answer the questions asked.

As far as Cuomo in Prime Time. No, thank you. I think that AC360 was a better program when it was only one hour in January. I'm over to the giant panels in the second hour and I have a feeling Anderson is, too.
