Anderson is back.
Tonight, a wall of water with no place to go but down the Mississippi and only about two dozen levees along the way to contain it. Each and every one of them is in danger of giving way like the one near Gulfport, Illinois did today. Dan Simon is there with the latest.
Randi Kaye has an up close look at Michelle Obama’s image makeover. Does she have what it takes to be a first lady? What impact will she have on the campaign?
Dana Bash is on the trail today with a look at the fight between McCain and Obama over energy and the war on terror. Who won? We’ll find out from the best political team on television.
Erica Hill has an update on story we brought you last week. It’s about Samuel Israel, a hedge fund manager, convicted of defrauding investors out of nearly 500 million dollars. He was supposed to start a 20-year prison sentence last week but he never showed up, though his car was found abandoned on a bridge with the words “suicide is painless” scrawled on the side. Authorities weren't sure if he killed himself or went on the run. Tonight, they have their answer.
Be sure to check out Anderson and Erica out on our live web camera from the 360° studio. 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.
