Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 6/10/08

John McCain and Barack Obama are making the economy the number one issue in the election and we’re keeping them honest tonight.

Sen. Obama’s team has come up with about 20 names of potenial VP candidates including some former military leaders. We’ll have a strategy session with best political team on television.

And, what about Chelsea? Now that her mother’s campaign is over what does the future hold for Chelsea Clinton? Gary Tuchman will have that report.

Please check out a post that may be helpful if you wonder why some comments get posted while others do not. LINK TO COMMENTS POST

    Now that bag is what I call some "bling". Only in my dreams would I ever be able to own that!

    Good discussion tonight. Campbell Brown did a great job! Nite all!

    Good night 360 Bloggers! As always, thanks for the thoughtful exchange and education. Have a great evening. Can't wait to see more Planet in Peril tomorrow (I hope)!

    Ken Starr...., he sure pocketed a lot of our tax dollars....for finding
    nothing....he's sharp, but useless....

    So Ken Starr is for the "stars" now? Hmmm.

    I'll take "blah" any day on Wall Street, as opposed to repeated 300-400 point drops.

    Jana, I'll bet Anderson couldn't wait to get away from all this political stuff for awhile and visit with the mountain gorillas! I can't blame him!

    Tom Foreman's report was interesting. Obama going after conservative Christians will be an interesting strategy, especially with the younger voters.

  16. Lorie Ann, Buellton, California

    It's a shame we all have to be divided by so many labels. Perhaps one day , we could have a candidate just spell out their plans, solutions and everything in between to All of us.

    June 10, 2008 at 10:50 pm |
  17. Cindy

    There is no way that conservatives will vote for Obama. He stands for everythign they are against...young or old Christians!

    I hope Obama gets the evangelical vote before McCain!

    Politics should not matter at all, relative to religion. Churches need to be taxed–they are businesses.

    Your Brain On Politics really works. John McCains fear ads really got me scared to death of him being president.

  21. Jana, Indiana

    I bet Anderson is so excited to be with the gorilla's and not having to worry about political discussions right now.

  22. Billi

    That was a very interesting report. Might that not explain why so many Clinton supporters are having a hard time switching to Obama, despite the calls for "reason" ? Their emotions are telling them otherwise.

  23. Linda, Los Angeles

    Hi David, I agree that Obama needs a vacation. Fact is McCain will continue to attack. Obama does not have the 3 month luxury McCain did. Best bet is to take weekend bike rides with the fam.

    Well goodnight – sounds like 360 may be a little more exciting tomorrow.

    David Gergen: Never thought about taking some time to get intellectual and determine what to lock in on regarding these issues. I'm all for a break but I believe both candidates would have to agree to take the vacation at the same time. If not, one would try to take advantage of the other being on a break. I suppose that would never happen! Thanks for live blogging tonight!

    Subliminal messages. Hmmm, everybody check your ice cubes CLOSELY until the election is over!

    STACY – Yes, you are right about Chelsea's current job.
    But should she decide to enter a more public career at some point, I hope it's not politics!

    David G.
    I agree with you........ I need my vacation any time......

  29. Mike, Syracuse, NY

    Both my subconscious and conscious mind agree...Obama is scary and dangerous.

    If Hilary became the Vice President, then Barack wouldn’t have to get up at 3am to answer the phone (she could)!

  31. Jody - Atlanta, GA

    David, glad you've joined us. I really enjoy your comments and can count on you for straightforward and balanced commentary.

    I don't believe this subconscious reading stuff! No way can they have a machine that does that.

    Jo Ann, I agree. Gary would do a great job with a Chelsea interview. And I'm guessing her camp wouldn't have to ask him twice.

    June 10, 2008 at 10:41 pm |
  34. Ric A. (Charlotte, NC)

    David, I couldn't agree more with the opinion that Barack should step back for a short while to develop comprehensive proposals for national security and the economy. He could ride that all the way to the White House!

  35. Cynthia

    I agree that Senator Obama probably needs to take off a little time to rest and rejuvanate. Senator McCain seems to have been on cruise for 3 months.

    June 10, 2008 at 10:40 pm |
  36. Stacy

    David, I completely agree. We all need a vacation from this endless campaign season.

    June 10, 2008 at 10:38 pm |
  37. Cindy

    David...Thanks for joining us! I think Obama and McCain both need time off. And honestly we all do too! We have been inundated with nothing but politics! We need a break!
