Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 11/13/08

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/30/art.liveblog.jpg]Thanks for staying up late with us. We're on at 11pm ET after CNN Presents: Escape from Jonestown.

We want you to be part of the program. Just scroll down and share your thoughts on tonight's stories.

But, keep in mind you have a better chance of getting your comment posted on the blog if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Don't write in ALL CAPS (we don't like screaming)
2) Stay on topic.
3) Keep it short
4) No curse words
5) Use your real name

Tonight on 360, will Hillary Clinton be the next Secretary of State? Two sources close to the Obama transition team tell CNN that Senator Hillary Clinton's name has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the post. We're also tracking the wild day on Wall Street. Big loses in the morning, but then in the afternoon the dow closed up more than 550 points. And, a new culprit of the collapse. This time we're zeroing in on the failing auto industry.

Don't miss Erica Hill's webcast during the commercials. LINK TO WEBCAST

    It is disturbing that people could have so much hate inside themselves. Sometimes learning about a culture and seeing that they are just like oneself helps. And if they only knew that there is only one race, the human race. Scientific studies prove this. We're all descendants from a woman in ancient Africa.

    Um, when you said "coming up next, two cute babies" I hope you weren't referring to Obama and Hillary. That was what was shown when you said that:)

    Wow! That Back On My Feet program is empowering! The Mind/Body /Soul equation is the best emotional and physical medicine. Very cool.

    I agree with several earlier posts – if the US car makers want to sell more cars, they need to make a much better product. A bailout for that industry won't work unless their product is completely revamped.

    I did my duty and voted for my favorite Hero. Tough group to choose from this year, I might add.

    That CNN hero is inspiring! How difficult it is going to be to vote for one hero of the year! I'm wiping my tears away...

    I do not believe in a bailout either – for the banks or the auto industry – however, what do we do with the thousands (I heard 20,000 today in realated industries) plus the employees of the Big 3 that do not have jobs? Do those losses not affect the ecnomy as well? More homes lost, more people drawing unemployments and food stamps, more metal health problems, more people with no health benefits – where does it end?

    AC- Why would we NOT bail out "the big three"? We bailed out AIG and that gave them a couple lavish trips to CA & AZ and they don't employ 1/1000th of the employee's of a GM or Ford.

    Love the CNN heroes!!! Thanks for bringing a smile and inspiring us with these stories!!!

    Martie, I was thinking the same thing. I'd be very surprised if they didn't know how to use the internet.

    Anderson it would be cool if you have a hero on the show or the "winner" hero

    I can't believe some people don't think the KKK doesn't exist these days. They are out there, I went to school with some guys that were into that stuff, they didn't hurt anyone though, but you knew what they were into. They are there, pretty quiet until recently I guess...in some parts...

    Anderson Cooper, did I just hear you say what I think you said?

    Why are we not treating this bailout the way it should be treated, as an investment opportunity. Some of these banks and car companies are American institutions that can use the money to learn from their mistakes and make their companies profitable again. Just because it's the government giving money, doesn't mean the taxpayer doesn't deserve to earn some interest or turn a profit. Washington always has to make things so darn complicated.

    I became friendly with a large very intimadating man who was actually extremely kind and considerate, a truelly wonderful man. He confided in me that he used ta b a KKK member. He has completely changed and now deeply regrets this and gets along well with people from many backgrounds. It's amazing how people can really change

  26. Martie

    Oh Anderson – surprised they knew how to use the internet? You must be tired. Isn't the web the favorite playground of all hate groups?

    academics have suggested these absurd compensation models to give incentives to CEO to perform well. I'm not saying academics are culprits of the collapse too, however. I'd like to see what kind of model they'll come up with once this mess is over... (When will it be over?!)

    Rick Wagnor ,GM CEO: Yet another CEO who gets paid for lousy performance. Like Nicholas Kristoff stated in the NYT, you can make $17,000 an hour with no success required, i.e. Fuld. Looks like GM will follow Lehman Brothers.

    it is so sad to know that the KKK exists in this day and age. They are probably underground but I believe that if we knew some of the members of the KKK it would scare the hell out of us!

    Hate is a learned behavior. I can't help but think there is emotional unbalance within people who hate.

    AC, we only have one American made car, my jeep, and we get recalls on it regularly. The auto industry needs to start from scratch and build a better product, if they want to succeed. They need to get rid of the dead weight at the top and study foreign car manufacturers. We don't seem to have problems with the German cars.

    Where will the bailouts end? The big three did this to themselves. Let them suffer the consequences of their own mismanagement and union greed.

    Anderson, you´ll be my lifetime hero (well, at least for the rest of this year) if you could influence the international program. The send us repeats from sport news of the day and I cannot follow your show 🙁
