    Nothing like the "real deal". I like how Erica called them "the girls". Thanks for the laugh. Us working gals never get to watch Oprah.

    Nite all!

    Good night Anderson, Erica and bloggers! Have a great night! Stay warm!

    Excellent shot of the day! And I must say it makes me laugh that saying the words 'breasts' or just a reference makes Anderson blush! 🙂

    Hearing Cooper and Winslet's commentary over the interview was the best! Hah!

    Well, goodnight all. Thanks for another fantastic show. I hope to see/hear/read you all tomorrow night! Stay safe!

    Anderson, you switched from saying breasts to natural assets? What's up with that?

    January 13, 2009 at 10:58 pm |
  15. Adriana

    Anderson...assets???????!!!!!! Good for you...

    wow did AC just say "breasts" that was HIGH-larious!!!

    January 13, 2009 at 10:57 pm |
  18. Chris Sosa - Boston, MA

    Ok, Anderson, you've got me curious now since every time you mention Oprah, Kate, and Kate's breasts you start cracking up.

    January 13, 2009 at 10:57 pm |
  19. Ashley - Hamlin, NY

    Hahaha....thanks Cooper and Hill! That just made my night! I can't begin to picture the entire AC360 team standing around the water cooler discussing Oprah and Kate Winslet's breasts. That image made my Tuesday complete!

    Take out he bowling alley? But I thought the girls were so excited about that?

    And I gotta say I'm pretty jealous of Anderson getting to travel with Obama and interview him!

    January 13, 2009 at 10:56 pm |
  21. Lori from IL

    Glad to hear that the White House will have a basketball court. I share PE Obama's love of the game. It will be a great stress reliever for him and he's obviously got "the moves."

    And, Anderson - It's okay to say the word "breasts" - you're old enough! Can't wait for the "shot"...

    January 13, 2009 at 10:55 pm |
  22. Glen Up North (New Brunswick, Canada)

    Ashley – you and me both! (and most likely quite a few others here as well)... Wait, Anderson and Obama jet-pooling??? Or AC getting the chance to interview Obama before/after the inauguration? Either way, good stuff. 🙂

    This just goes to show the vulnerability of our aviation system. I am a pilot myself, and the security issues amaze me. If his intentions were to harm people, he could have pulled it off. Autopilots now days are extremely elaborate and can practically fly the plane from take off to landing with the right conditions (ILS Landing, GPS waypoints, etc.) with little input, if any at all, from the pilot. If this was intended, the best case scenario would of been the AF shooting the plane down, risking injuries on the ground. The FAA needs to look into this risk potential, especially if GM's OnStar can unlock your car doors.

    Why is Oprah talking about Kate Winslet's breasts??????

    January 13, 2009 at 10:55 pm |
  25. Bea

    Sorry Craig Robinson. That comment about a man's true character being seenon a basketball court is pretty ridiculous. LOL. Maybe merely how he relates to other men.

    I am sure that a lot of people in Gaza don't agree with this fighting, but they are frightened about being considered spies if they say something...It's hard to understand the terror when you don;t live it...I am sure the life for them is terrible right now, I hope this fight will end soon.

    Ah the Verizon center... and the Oysters at Clyde's

  28. Ashley - Hamlin, NY

    Really....we're analyzing how PE Obama plays basketball? All right, there's a war in Gaza...come on now!

    Megan, the reporter Anderson just spoke too was IN GAZA.

    I enjoy watching Barack Obama play basketball!!

  31. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    Go "O" for putting in a basketball court! I would like to check out those 450k dishes laura bought! Wow!

    No bowling alley? A full size court. Think big I guess.

    Cooper and PE Obama on a plane ride....I'm not entirely sure which one I am jealous of.

    January 13, 2009 at 10:53 pm |
  37. Patrice Palmer

    Heather – I wouldn't want to be in Gaza either. Unfortunately the residents of Gaza aren't free to leave. I hope this conflict is resolved quickly. I can't imagine living under the conditions in which they are trying to simply exist.
