Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 3/12/08

Breaking News tonight in the Eliot Spitzer sex scandal.  The New York Times is putting a face to the name "Kristen" – the name of the prostitute allegedly used by Gov. Spitzer.  We have a reporter working to find out more about her.

And Silda Spitzer, for the second time this week she's been seen standing by her husband.  What message does that send to women?

We'll talk politics: Geraldine Ferraro's comment and the latest plans in Florida's primary fight. 

As always, we'll start posting comments at 10p ET and close at 11p ET.  See you there!

    Just watched Joe John's report about the Florida Democratic primary. Why not let them re-do the election with paper ballots?

    Go Ed and his mad captioning skillz ! I'm in awe of 360's incredible partying budget!

    Again, where was the outcry about the delegates not being seated when that decision was made? Why did it take Hillary's whining to bring this issue up again!?

    At 1st I thought that 101 yr-old man was Fidel Castro.

    FL and MI Legislatures knew what they were getting into. Don"t be fooled!

    It is a waste of money to redo the vote. We voted and those votes should count.

    March 12, 2008 at 10:54 pm |
  15. Gary

    @JAnna I agree, but seat the delegates with a 50-50 split at the DNC. This way....no legal angle for the Clintons to challenge the outcome.

    Great show tonight, Anderson and Erica, sorry but I have to go.

    Good night all!

    I'm from Florida and would like to see a revote. Most people I know didn't go out to the polls because they knew their vote wouldn't count. I would like our voices to be heard. I understand the money issue but the voters shouldn't be punished for the bigwig's choices.

    "So in November, if someone doesn’t like the outcome in Florida, are they going to call a re-do, or a recount?"

    They will just ask the Supreme Court to decide again.

    Kathy – Obama was 'thrown into stardom' when he delivered the Keynote at the Democratic Convention in 2004...

    wow! i'm glad to see floridians supporting the idea of simply moving on. the money is not there and the delegate count would not be pushed toward either candidate enough to determine the winner.

  23. Hazel

    I was shocked at Ferraro's words as well. I don't think she's necessarily racist, but they were definately offensive. And seriously, she couldn't have focused more on the issues at hand?

    Anderson, that tie! My mom and I are drooling here looking at you with that awesome tie you! =]

    HI Erica –
    Remember the chaos in FL during last election?? Can you imagine having people vote by mailing in their votes?? and may i ask who is going to pay for the stamp??

    March 12, 2008 at 10:53 pm |
  25. Kaitlin

    Just curious...for those of you who don't want a re-vote in FL, what would you like to see?

    Wow...that old man looks really spry.

    March 12, 2008 at 10:52 pm |
  27. Lorie Ann, Buellton, California

    At least the 101 year old man is newsworthy.

    Hey all you people making comments. First and foremost remember this!!! It's all about selling newspapers. Sensationalism sells.. Sex sells a hundred fold more. Let the media sharks get their fill until they decide to move onto another prey. Didn't the Clintons survive? This guy is only a governor not a president.. Escorts are a service in demand. What's in your closet???

    Erica, but did we really need the interview-the-pimp angle? Sorry, former pimp.

    @ Kathy, Obama was not brought into spotlight by Oprah. He built his popularity for who he is.

    So in November, if someone doesn't like the outcome in Florida, are they going to call a re-do, or a recount?

    Janna, what about your friends and family, do they agree or do some want the chance to vote?

    March 12, 2008 at 10:51 pm |

    Sounds like the powers that be in FL and MI gambled and lost – big time. The resolution will be a mess.

  34. stevy, Winnipeg

    @ Nadia
    Ferraro's comment was definately without any doubt racist. Barack is a fine American that is making gaint strides because of who he is inside than outside.

    March 12, 2008 at 10:51 pm |
  35. Renee

    @ Erica: No re-do! We had a certified election. We are a broke state. RE values down 40% and tax reform. We do not have another $10 million.

    Why is it that Florida always causes the problems with voting. Doesnt anyone find it strange that everything always hinges on Florida in elections

    Isn't it true that Senator Obama was thrown into stardom by the Oprah Winfrey endorsement. Seriously, do you think she would have endorsed him if he were white? But no, let's not mention "race."

    March 12, 2008 at 10:50 pm |
  38. Janna

    Erica, I'm blogging from Fla and think it would be a waste of time and money to re vote. It wouldn't bring either candidate enough delegates anyway.

    March 12, 2008 at 10:50 pm |
  39. julie

    I agree with David Gergen. The remark from Ferraro was meant to marginalize Obama...it was uncalled for. And of course, Hillary is not condeming it.
    These Democrats have an election handed to them and they are going to get buried if they don't stop this nonsense. The race card should not be used...this is coming from a 57 white woman who is a former Republican and now supports someone with vision who transends the old politics...and I am not a woman hater!
