Happy Memorial Day!

Bill Clinton was defending his wife this weekend saying Sen. Clinton has been handled disrespectfully and that "they are trying to push and pressure and bully" superdelegates. Who exactly is he talking about? And what impact will his remarks have on the campaign? We'll have analysis of that and the backlash from Hillary Clinton's RFK assassination comments and the fight between John McCain and Barack Obama over the G.I. bill.

Severe storms swept across the midwest this weekend spawning deadly tornadoes across several states. One killed six people in Iowa. Another, in Minnesota, claimed the life of a 2-year-old child.
We'll take you as close as possible to the sheer power of a tornado. We'll show you footage taken on Saturday in Oklahoma from a helicopter. It is some of the most dramatic images you will ever see of a tornado's strength.

According to the Army, as many as 121 active-duty soldiers committed suicide last year, an increase of 20 percent over 2006. It's an alarming trend that has many wondering what's being done to prevent more deaths. Randi Kaye is keeping them honest.

Don't' forget about 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.

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

    Thanks Anderson for another great show> Sad story about the officer who committed suicide, but a story that needs to be told and for Americans to pay attention to what is happening to our troups.

    Good night all. A very interesting show. More people need to be made aware of post traumatic stress syndrome who have loved ones that come back so that they will know the signs, symptoms, etc.

    AC, don't feel bad, I did the vasoline in the hair thing too when I was a kid (and I don't think it washed out for a few days). So much for trying to make your hair shiny! Have a good night & good show.
