Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 5/15/08

Tonight, an extraordinary decision by the California Supreme Court. In a 4-3 ruling they struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional, clearing the way for the state to become America's second to legalize same-sex marriage. We're covering all the angles on this tonight: legal analysis, debate, the political implications and an interview with San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

Also, President Bush, in Israel, not naming names, but clearly suggesting Barack Obama would have sucked up to Adolph Hitler. Wait until you hear how Democrats responded.

And in one of his most important speeches yet, Sen. John McCain painted a picture of what life will be like after he's in the White House. He talked about Iraq, the military and Osama Bin Laden. And in doing so, he may have given us the best idea of his plans if elected.

Be sure to check out our live web camera from the 360° studio. The shot features Anderson and Erica behind the scenes on the set. We'll turn the camera on at 945p ET and turn it off at 11p ET. LINK TO THE BLOG CAMERA

We'll start posting comments to this blog at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.

Thank you everyone for your honesty and thank you Anderson, Erica, and 360 for taking on the controversial topics in such a professional manner.

    Anderson, I think somebody needs to buy you a WII. You'd love that 'new fangled' toy that all the kids are playing with. 😉

    I saw the Swiss rocket man earlier on another news program and had the feeling that Anderson would think it was cool and it would end up on the shot.
