    Didn't vote for McCain but he does have a good sense of humor. I will be watching Letterman tonight.

    David Gergen should get a show of his own! I suggest "The Gergen Show" ! We really need such an intellectual , objective voice on TV in today's crazy world! Anyone interested in wrting a petition... 🙂 ?

    On the Joe the Plumber and spreading the wealth comments that have been jumped on, I have to say that I agree with Barack. Why are people acting as if Barack invented taxes? Aren't we paying taxes now? I heard that average Americans are paying more taxes than major corporations now. If that's the case then yes, please spread the wealth!! Spread it now!! Spread it all day every day!! Spread!! Spread!!!Spread!!!

    David Gergen is so going to regret posting his email address on this blog. I can't even imagine the amount of email he is going to get. It's tough being popular!! David needs to challenge Anderson to a dance competition (FOR CHARITY) to get even!! Great show. Thanks 360! 'Night bloggers!

    One of the culprits of the collapse should be the financial ignorance of the American People. Blaming a housing/mortgage company for placing people in homes they could not afford is like blaming the drug dealer for the addiction. I think people that entered these mortgages with some skepticism, because suddenly like a lightening bolt, they could afford a house that was unaffordable just years before. Stand up people and take your blame as well.

    I was thinking the same thing...the jovial McCain would've certainly fared better than the grimmacing McCain

    Moved to be a first time blogger when I heard Jesse Klein's "Ode to David." I am so with you! David is the greatest.

    The most wanted list is the best. It clearly illustrates the brain trust that contributed to this spiraling mess.

    Fun show tonite! What a great end to a dull day! good night, all.

    Your ten most wanted list should have Chris Dodd and Barney Frank in the top five. When Richard Shelby tried to rein in Freddie, they fought on straight party lines to push huge increases in sub-prime lending – blocking reform and running the train right off the track with a policy encouraged banks and Wall Street to issue risky loans.

    I am so glad my fellow Gergenites are coming out of the closet! I too love David Gergen (seriously!) I value his opinion and always pay close attention when he speaks. My friends and I were just talking about Gergen and our love for him the past weekend. Don't worry Anderson, I love you too! And I think Gergen should catch you on camera dancing and show it live. Go Anderson. Go Anderson...get your groove on :)....Just a thought

    thanks for showing the clips from the Al Smith charity roast....it is great seeing a lighter tone during this bitter political season. it was also nice to see Barack yet again showing how intelligent he is while being humorous. this was by fair McCain's best performance. but hopefully the country will be able to pull together to vote for intelligence this time.

    Just wanted to add our appreciation for David Gergen. I'm sure that he never thought that he would be getting fan mail! My sister and I (both Canadians) always value his insight. Both David and Candy are true professionals!

    I must say Joe the Plumbers marketing plan worked great! Best way to get business is to get everyone talking about you. Maybe he will have to worry about taxes after this.

    Tina Fey does an amazing impersonation of Sarah Palin. She's definitely a lot funnier than Palin herself!

    After last night's high tension debate, it was refreshing to see both of the canidates loosen up a little and come together for a good cause. Thank you for showing some of their routines.

    Hands-down McCain was funnier. Obama should relax...even his jokes are uptight!
