    Sarah Palin ,interview or putdown? When has ANYONE said a nice,kind thing about Palin since she came on the scene? She has more experience than the other candidates, as much as Mr. Clinton had when he was elected,yet ALL the news does is criticize her WHY? She like ,all vice presidents, will surround herself with the most informed professionals. Why not give her a chance?

    Wow, Greenspan. If anything I think he is going to defend himself by pointing some fingers. He knows more about what really caused the crisis than anyone else in America.

    regarding casey anthony, doesn't anybody think it's at least a bit sketchy that she didn't report her missing for a MONTH? I mean, maybe she's just incredibly unobservant, but doesn't that seem like a bit of a stretch? In my opinion, her incarceration is completely justified just by the fact that it took her so long to report her own daughter missing. Remember, she isn't being held for murder, just on suspicion.

    There has been voter fraud here in Indiana as well because of ACORN. I would think that would be a hot topic for your show to cover more of.

    Dancing is good exercise. Keep you flexible and a great stress reliever even in the comfort of your own home. I hope you tried it, Mr. Cooper. We will see you dance right? Some day?

    Mike you are so wrong....Roland is one commentator on CNN out of many representing a broad spectrum. From the left to the middle to the right. Anderson is always fair.

    Hey Erica, there is definitely a bug going around. I am sniffling too! Hope you feel better!

    WOW! 360 has guts. Alan Greenspan! I admire your verve.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:53 pm |
  15. Brian - Rochester, MN

    Thank you Anderson...From your biggest fan! Love that Alan Greenspan is one of the most wanted!

  16. Jud in Chicago

    Great work with the top 10 list AC360! "Greenspan always meant well..." you guys have put together a great list that opens people's eyes.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:53 pm |
  17. Pam

    OH good, Greenspan is busted. Thanks!

  18. EJ (USA)

    Roland Matin’s partisanship has no place on CNN. If you can’t have unbiased commentators like David Gergen, you should not comment at all.

    How silly to single out Roland Martin.

    There are many other liberal & conservative commentators on 360 other than Roland. In fact, most of them do lean one way or the other.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:52 pm |
  19. Gary

    Wow....Al Greenspan and Phil Gramm.....can you guys say BARNEY FRANK, NANCY PELOSI, OR CHRIS DODD????

    October 14, 2008 at 10:52 pm |
  20. Jim, Canada

    Naming names love it AC !! Wow Alan Greenspan! I remember he could not even cross the road by himself or the economy would sneeze. Now he is on the list ! Wonder if he will talk to you?

    Feel better Erica!

  22. Sarah

    Enjoyed the two James Stewart and woman discussing the economy and not bringing politics into the equation. How refreshing...enjoyed James saying the old saying, "buy low, sell high" and that he bought last week!!!!!

    Anderson-

    Love the Ten Culprits of the Collapse piece your show has been doing! I have a feeling you are going to have to expand past 10 before this is all over.

    janis, welcome to the blog!

  25. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Good job Anderson, I completely agree that Greenspan should be on the list!

    October 14, 2008 at 10:51 pm |
  26. joshua sanchez

    yea she know exactly where her daughter is dead or alive..

    October 14, 2008 at 10:51 pm |
  27. Jacqui Chan

    I knew it would b Greenspan!

  28. Patricia W. in Edmonton, Canada

    Good evening Anderson, Erica,
    What amazes me is that somehow Sarah thinks she can handle being vice president...she can't even talk to the press with exception to very isolated situations. I'd really like to see her speak with Anderson or with Larry and hear her actually think on her feet...I think America deserves to see if she can actually do that.

    "Roland Matin’s partisanship has no place on CNN. If you can’t have unbiased commentators like David Gergen, you should not comment at all."

    As much as I agree with Roland, I agree MORE with this statement.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:50 pm |
  30. Jud in Chicago

    my guess for the end of the show and the top 10 list is Greenspan. Is there a place where I can bet on it?

    Anderson,

    I love your show!

  33. Keith

    Your right Erica, write-ins are an option as are Ralph Nader, Barr, etc...
    and where is Pat Paulsen when you need him?

    P.S. You may have something there about Tuesdays...

    Too funny. Anderson, did you get your groove on with Kelly. Can't wait to see the clip. LOL

  35. Rory - NYC

    Comic relief: Anderson you did a great job this am & you made
    the right decision NOT to dance lol!

    Erica,
    I am hoping you will feel better soon!!!!! Take care yourself! 😉

    Im with you Anderson, I dont like dancing either.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:49 pm |
  38. Gabe

    U did not dance for Kelly bummer......Future segment for AC360 could be Anderson goes to hip hop class!! The ratings would be HUGE!! You and Erica could do it!

  39. EJ (USA)

    How are they charging Casey Anthony with murder? They haven’t found her daughter yet, right? Do they know she has been hurt?

    The police know that there was a decomposing body in the trunk. Also, they found a strand of Caley's hair in the trunk. Plus the numerous lies the mother told.

  40. CaseyJ - Palm Springs, CA

    Anderson, buying and selling stock is all-too-frequently an emotional process for the masses, as opposed to a well-though-out process. That's why people buy when the price goes up, just like the market yesterday, people are afraid to be left out and jump w/o thinking.

    October 14, 2008 at 10:49 pm |
  41. Helen

    The next "usual suspect" for this financial mess is Greenspan. I'm pretty sure of that.

    Asian market down...not good news.
    Maybe we should all show our patriotism tomorrow and buy a few stocks.

    Erica I hope you get to feeling better real soon Lady you sound like you should be home this evening.

  46. Joan Schneider

    Anderson,
    Love your show..especially erica, Roland and David G. Too bad Erica doesn't feel well because she sure looks great!
    I look forward to your show each evening at 9:00PM here in Wisconsin!!
    Your new feature of the top ten who are most at fault for this financial mess is a fantastic idea. Sounds like your feature keeping them honest.
    Keep up the great work. We are counting on you to be fair and balanced.

    Erica, If you have a cold go to an herb shop and get some andrographis. It works well and it is a natural herb. Eat a lot of vitamin C. Good Luck

  48. Jason in Dallas

    Agreed Heather...but...

    How come the grand mother isn't in jail as well? She has hindered the case too!

    I can see some of Casey Anthony's problems by seeing the relationship between the two. A prime example of why "complete" parenting including tough love is necessary
