Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 5/5/08

It’s the countdown to the primaries in Indiana and North Carolina.  Tomorrow is what Sen. Hillary has called a “game changer” and with 187 delegates at stake it could shake up the race.   We’ll have the latest from the campaign trail and analysis of campaign strategy from the best political team on television.

We want to know what you think so we’ll start posting comments at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.

If you’ve been wondering why some comments get posted while others do not take a look at our comments post.  It should have some answers for you.   LINK TO COMMENTS POST

    If you do the conversion from metric to US gallons and convert the dollar from Canadian to US, gas in Canadian is approximately $4.75 US dollars per US gallon!

    Always so sad when Mother Nature is so cruel as in Bruma now. Makes one realize just how fragile life and home are.

    Seems odd that prices are higher out west when all that oil is coming out of Alaska.

    15,000 dead–just unbelievable, such a tragedy.

    15,000 lives lost is just too isande to fathom.

    We got less then 2 minutes about Burma.......what is up with that. Not cool 360

    It was changed to Myanmar by the current military junta. People still call it Burma since they don't recognize the current leadership as valid. Still calling it Burma shows insight not ignorance.

  21. Tracey - Boston

    Isn't Myanmar a military state??? Where Burma was not...

    Think if Myanmar as cuba after Castro

    it's not often the federal gov't offers us tax money back – why don't we just take it

    May 5, 2008 at 10:54 pm |
  24. Jo Ann, Ohio

    Anderson, I hope you get the chance to go to Burma. It is such a tragedy that the junta did not warn the people in time. They could have prevented so many deaths.

    @Tracey, Boston....Yes, that's right and we pay more in Provincial tax and gst tax and road tax...so we could really use a GAS TAX holiday
    too. But at least our dollar is basically at par so we shop in USA
    sometimes too. We are near MI border.

    -Trisha
    The U.S. doesn't support the name Myanmar due to the political turmoil and continues to officially call the country Burma.
    It's not ignorance, it's politics and policy.

  27. Mike from Syracuse NY

    Steve, Maybe next time the Democratic Party should just forget about primaries and just do it all with superdelegates. Much cleaner. None of those messy voters interfering.

    Miles,
    I think so.... that is possible........... $4.80 lite per gallon.

    Trisha: I refuse to call it Myanmar because it is a name that was forced on the people by the ruling junta.
    I don't say Bombay for similar reasons, either.

    Those countries in that area are so low to sea level that any storm surge kills thousands if not millions.

    After tommorrow , the bulk of delegates have been picked up for this primary , I think the super delegates should come out, the sooner the better

    See what I mean about America & ignorance...the country's name is Myanmar....lol....no longer Burma people!
