The candidates, O.J. Simpson and Gen. David Petraeus…all on the 360° radar:
ON THE TRAIL:Sen. John McCain begins his day alone in Florida before joining his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, at a rally in Vienna, OH. Sen. Barack Obama has an event in Golden, CO and Sen. Joe Biden hosts a town hall meeting in Media, PA.
RAW POLITICS:Wevley Shea is a Republican and an admirer of Gov. Sarah Palin. He says he warned Palin back in July that the probe into whether or not she used the power of the Governor’s office to carry out a personal vendetta against her former brother-in-law was turning into a serious problem for her and told her how to handle it. Shea says she didn’t listen and now her husband and a dozen aides are under subpoena. Could things have turned out differently if Gov. Palin took his advice? Randi Kaye will have that report.
TOUMA MURDER CASE: A hearing is scheduled for Edgar Patino who is accused of the murder of Army Spc. Megan Touma in June 2008.
EMPEROR'S CLUB SENTENCING: Mark Brener, who pled guilty to prostitution and money laundering conspiracy, is scheduled to be sentenced. Allegedly, former NY governor Eliot Spitzer was a client of the Emperor's Club.
PETRAEUS BECOMES COMMANDER OF U.S. CENTRAL COMMAND: Gen. David Petraeus takes over as Commander of U.S. Central Command. Lt General Raymond T. Odierno will take over command of the forces in Iraq.
O.J. SIMPSON TRIAL CONTINUES:Today the jury heard an audiotape of the confrontation in the hotel room where the alleged robbery occurred. And an alleged victim in the case, Bruce Fromong, became ill after several hours of testimony. Fromong is 54 years old and says he has had four heart attacks. Will he be back on the stand?
