Blog from the Anchor Desk 2/8/08

Hey everyone, I'm in Los Angeles tonight.  I flew here this morning because I have to shoot a story over the weekend for 60 Minutes.

I will be live blogging again tonight.  We are still working out the kinks, but I really enjoyed it the other night so we will keep going with it.

I actually used to do this a long time ago.  If any of you ever watched ABC’s World News Now about eight years ago when I was anchoring, you may remember that we used to have a live chat component online.  It’s a lot of extra work, but it’s nice being able to respond to people in real time.

I guess the other night someone posted something pretending to be me.  They ended the posting with a smiley face.  Just for the record, I stopped using smiley faces and bubble hearts in 2nd grade.

We are focusing a lot on politics tonight, but we will be showing you another celebrity announcer audition as well.  I'm very excited about tonight's auditioner.  She has a very distinctive voice – perfect for 360°! 

– Anderson Cooper

Editor's note: Please keep your comments focused on the content and context of the live program.  We'll start posting at 10p ET and close the blog to comments at 11p ET.
