Just like last night, we'll be posting your comments from 10pm ET to Midnight ET.

Tonight on 360°, the battle for votes. We'll take you live to the Obama rally at the Univerity of Missouri-Columbia. And, is John McCain closing the gap in the polls? All that and more, tonight on 360°.

We want you to be part of the program. Share your thoughts below.

But remember our rules.

Here are some of them:

    I don't think Obama is getting too confident. He is constantly reminding us folks to remember New Hampshire.

    Just before Gary Tuchman said those who were supporting McCain also thought George Bush was doing a good job, I was thinking that these people probably all think George Bush is doing a good job. Ignorance is bliss. How utterly stupid. It's scary that McCain/Palin appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    Now why don't we all prevail on David Gergen to run for President next time? We would all be certain we'd get a responsible, reliable, knowledgeable man in the WH

    Think about, Mr Gergen!

    Enough of "Joe the Plumber". Please Anderson ask the Repubs what is McCain"s plan, I don't know why they are all cheering when Obama's plan benefit's most of them.

    "Regroup" That's the word for the day. There will be a lot of people that will need to regroup regardless of who gets the presidency, Americans seem so divided. Enjoyed Gary Tuchman's report.

    David Gergen really tries to be unbiased, you are one reason a McCain supporter tunes in to this program every night.
    Any new book in the works?

    "overconfident" well there's one of those wonderful code words. These people love the prospect of "taking him down a notch."
