    Good night dear Andy and Erica! Those chimps are smart, eh? Maybe the chimps could run the country. What do you think? 🙂

    Anderson, What happened? You had David Gergen ready to explode after the republican strategist called Obama a socialist 5 times in 2 minutes and you let her off the hook by asking Gergen about Palin's wardrobe. How can you use the best political analyst on television today to answer such an absurd question when you have him set up to address a critically important issue such as the republican's accusations that Obama is a socialist.

    Kudos to Ann in Virginia – after watching the dispicable actions of those in attendence at many of Palins campaign stops – i agree – their "supporters" are doing more to lose this election for them than anything – it's like watching a hate rally – only you have to remember – Ohmagosh – shes actually the VP candidate....

    I am getting so frustrated listening to your panel tonight. In regards to Joe Bidens comments about Obama being tested in the first 6 months of his presidencey. It is and always has been a very volitale time (when a new president comes in). I thought EVERYONE knew that! JFK, Clinton, Ford, just to name a few-were all tested within the first year of their presidency. Not only that but if you check the facts, the Pentagon is already laying out 5 possible senarios (of crisis) for the new president elect. I am sure Biden knows that. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I suspect this is what Biden was referring to.

    $150,000. clothing allowance & make-up for the Palins?

    I betcha, and also, that the Obamas are not measuring the drapes in the White House.

    I betcha the Obamas will make do with the drapes that are already there in respect for those that don't have jobs, or have lost their life savings in pensions, or those who have had their homes foreclosed, etc.

    I am confident the Obamas will have the best interests of all Americans at heart.

    Hey Anderson – What about these reports of Palin's charging Alaska's taxpayers for her kid's and husbands travel with her to state government functions, stays in luxury hotels and the like?

    Yea, Roland!!! I wonder if they'll ask Joe Plumber whether or not he feels spending 3 to 4 times his salary on clothes for Mrs. Palin's four month campaign run is an appropriate use of the taxpayer funds Mr. McCain accepted for his campaign.

    Just curious, but what did the DNC spend on Obama's suits and make-up? How about Joe Biden's? How about the greek columns? How much did that production cost? IF you want to be sexist than by all means lets just talk about Palin's clothes. Really, I thought this was 2008......my mistake.
