    I understood that the airport is just 5 miles from downtown. Walking 5 miles takes about an hour. When my parents were kids in a rural area, they walked almost 15 miles round trip to school each day (1920's).
    Why can the uninjured people at the palace and other camps not walk to the airport and pickup supplies? .
    That would be still be possible even if the airport was 15 miles away.

    Polls said that even 20% of Democrats were supporting Brown, as did 95% of Republicans and 60% of Independents.

    Many are going to be "in trouble"!
    I wonder how many more are now going to decide not to run again like Sen Dodd...or if others are going to switch parties?! (or try and run as an Independent?)

    should military/un use sidearms instead of holding rifles. less of a threat. able to use both hands. and have 1 rifle every 10 soldiers.

    blessings, peace and healing to you and all of the staff in haiti

    @Mike, formerly from Syracuse,

    "Of course this is a repudiation of Obama's policies. Just wait until November. This was just the opening act."

    This definitely puts all the Dems running for re-election this year on notice. They might be forced to second guess their vote on Obama's health care reform.

    Glad to see the Marines landing at the Presidential Palace grounds and setting up medical/food/water. Somebody there must have been reading this blog from last night!

    Anderson and Sanjay.......looking forward to your reports tonight!

  7. Francoise

    Anderson,
    A suggestion : ask those who's planes where not permitted to land again today if they where asked $$$$ to be prioritize. I wouldn't be surprise ! Also, we, in Canada, have to different information. One say's that the airport is under the local authority while an other source say that the airport is under American control. Could you please clarify this....

    Helo All,

    I cant believe that GOP too Mass.!!! This could be a good outcome, maybe now there will be negotiation.

    Okay, I am over the Mass. results. Back to AC and Sanjay's heroic efforts in Haiti! Thank you once again for not forgetting about Haiti after 1 week! Keep up the great work CNN and Anderson!

    I am saddened by the news out of MA. Ted Kennedy spent his whole like trying to bring healthcare to everyone. I can't believe it is his state that would let his dream die.

    That's amazing!
    A woman in her 70's was found alive today? YAY!

    I hope that she is doing well....that should give everyone hope!

    When does the next election for President of Haiti begin?
    I think some may be voting differently next election time there in Haiti

    Im surprised that Mass elected a republican after 40 years of democratic standing

  14. Paolo

    Hi everyone! If a democrat can't win in a state as blue as Massachusetts, we can expect a very challenging midterms for democrats. I hope Democrats wake-up and smell the red paint coming to Washington.

    @Jo Ann, the polls weren't even closed yet when the snipping between Democrats began. I love it!

    Maybe not all Mass Dems are unhappy with what the White House is doing, but enough independents were.

  17. Emily

    Good evening Anderson, 360 Team, Megan, Martina, & bloggers!

    Congrats to Scott Brown!

    I bet there are more Independents than what people think!

    Anderson,
    Hi!
    No one can compare to Ted Kennedy.
    It's incredible to see the rescue from the cathedral–and welcome news with the death toll in Haiti rising so depressingly high. I hope the woman will be ok.

    Thank god you are raising the questions on your show that every is thinking regarding the aid in haiti, especially me.

    Of course this is a repudiation of Obama's policies. Just wait until November. This was just the opening act.

    Doctors without Borders turned away again? What the heck is going on there? That's insane! Is there something political going on there? I don't understand.

  22. Cynthia, NC

    Good evening all. What is the deal with Doctors Without Borders not being able to land their flights in Port-au-Prince? The Haitians need medical professionals and supplies!

    And the people of MA have sent a stern message this evening.

    @Mike, formerly from Syracuse, I heard that Coakley and the White House are already pointing fingers at one another for the loss.

    I wonder what Obama has left in his bag of tricks. I can not believe that this happened as a result of Kennedy's death. So disappointing!

  25. Gayle McCauley Malden,Mass.

    Greetings to All! Being a democrat from Mass. I am not happy at all about the outcome of today's election of Scott Brown.Please don't assume that ALL people in Mass.are unhappy with Mr .Obama and his policies. Even though we have (universal) healthcare in Mass. I was hoping that the rest of the country would be able to feel the security that our healthcare system provides us.Maybe they will someday,but I was hoping it would be sooner than later. He's no Ted Kennedy.

    I have to wonder why the infrastructure is so bad in Haiti. What did Preval and his predecessors do with the billions they have gotten from the international community to help their country over the years?

    I am amazed at the human spirit and the desire to survive. I pray for all in Haiti.... from all the citizens, rescuers, all relief workers... medical and non... and all the reporters... what you are seeing and experiencing is devastating.. take care of all of yourselves and be safe

    why isnt their surgeons on site or atleast close by preparing for when survivors are pulled from the rubble? It takes hours to pull them from the rubble so that should be plenty of time to get something prepared for them!

    I guess Obama is losing his "magic" touch.

    January 19, 2010 at 10:07 pm |
  33. charlie

    If US lawmakers cannot make changes with a 59% majority of lawmakers. There seems to be no hope of US changing to adapt to the modern world.

    January 19, 2010 at 10:07 pm |
  34. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    Coakley's negative ads were obscene. Even Democrats had to be embarrassed. This makes 3 out of 3 races where Obama campaigned and Democrats still lost.

    Good evening everyone! So it's Mr. Brown that goes to Washington – very interesting.

    Keep on keeping them honest and doing your part in Haiti, Anderson!

    What people need to understand is that it takes time to get food and supplies to the people of Haiti. Establishing supply lines is crucial in getting the necessary aid into the country.

  38. Bethany Eschtruth-Dorceus Lansing ,MI

    I am a US citizen, My husband is from Haiti we have 2 children and 5 neices/ nephews over there under the age 12. we would like to bring them here out of harms way and let the need medical and food supplies go to those that don't have anywhere to go. Can anyon help

    It's so gratifying to know that there are people being rescued alive!

    Brown's win sends a huge message to the Democrats. I wonder if they will listen to it.

    hello all my first attempt at joining a blog, so moved in MA, so upset, and dissapointed. 😦

    Dear Anderson,

    Hopefully the ways to bring global supportive things (e.g medical supplies) will pick up.

    A special thanks to you Anderson Cooper for rescuing the child and to Dr Sanjay Gupta for treating patients.

    Stay safe my hero and return soon.

    Sincerely,
