Good night everyone. Tomorrow is Friday – yeah!!
Brittney and Jenny- Great work. Best of luck to you both!
I noticed that too Megan, the tape mix up, but I didn't want to say too much about it. I'm gland Obama is keeping abreast of the economy on a daily basis too.
Beautiful pictures of the Obamas, very relaxed at home.
Good night Megan. Good night everyone
Anderson – do you need tips to rest up? 😉
Good evening/night to Anderson, Erica, David, CNN, and all bloggers here. Have faith, but first have faith in _yourselves_!
Good night and au revoir
thanx for keeping in touch with the people Anderson, Erica, and David... Truly the place for "OUR" politics... - great blogging
The man playing the clarinet is from Chicago (though he now lives in NY and at 29 is the principal clarinet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra) and his story is very interesting. His name is Anthony McGill (not "and company").
Good night all - good mix in the show tonight Anderson.
For anyone who thinks Obama isn't doing enough or don't think he is doing the right things, NO ONE has the answers right now...no one. It's all a crap shoot.
Good night bloggers! Thank you for the lively conversation. Thank you, again, 360.
fyi, stringed instruments are very sensitive to the environment, moisture, heat, cold, etc... i can understand them having to pre-record it.
Great discussion tonight! Don't think anyone can really imitate Obama! Have a great evening everyone!
Maybe the Chief Justice should have lipsynched the oath.
Thursday's shot? canned music? No.. It's a double of Obama. This man is guaranteed a job for at least four years. He can sleep well, he's employed. Night all.
That was a comical shot of the day! Good night Anderson, Erica, David and bloggers, I don't think I will be able to join you tomorrow so have a great discussion and a wonderful weekend!
Congrats Brittiany and what's her name!
Have a great night Anderson, Erica, David, and bloggers!
Last night for Britteny and Jenny.... thanks for making your past work terrific.
I've been wondering how they pulled that long piece of music off in 22 degree weather. Makes much more sense now! At least these musicians are real musicians and have amazing talent, unlike Miss Simpson.
Good night Anderson, Erica, David Gergen, and best bloggers!!!
Have a great night and sleep tight!!!!!
See you next Monday night!!!! Have a great weekend!!!
LOL!!!!! Anderson.... Yo silly man!!!!!! get sleep after work....... Hope you have a great weekend.......... bye!
Day of the shot with impresstion Obama!!!! LOL!!!! very funny shot!!! not good idea!!! LOL!
I suppose the time is running down.
So, to Anderson, you produced a great show. Have a wonderful night.
To the bloggers, have a great night. It was fun to discuss with you all tonight.
Try not to have nightmares about the economy.
Erica: Why are some Americans not likely to hear the word "layoff?"
John Thain got the best deal Merryll could ever have gotten, got the better of Ken Lewis. Why isnt there more anger at Ken Lewis, Bank of America @ $5 ???
Goodnight David Gergen & Erica – thanks for blogging with us.
Great pics of the Obama's! Haven't seen such "love" in the White House since Ronald and Nancy Reagan!
As someone who took lessons in both voice and dance I can tell you that temperature makes a big difference in performing!
Great show tonight! You seem to have your 'groove' back, Anderson. Erica, loved the webcast and David G. great insight, as always.
wow anderson, reliving the Ashley Simpson tragedy?! I can't believe you would still remember such chaotic times...ahh yes..lets take a moment to ponder..lol
I hear you Glen. We can only wish. 🙂
Have a great night, everyone!
i thought gary was adorable. he looked very sharp for the ball.
As a violinist, I can tell you that cold or extreme hot can take its toll on instruments. And the cello that Yo Yo Ma plays probably cost a pretty penny! It was probably a good thing that they pre-recorded the piece! 🙂
I hope you have a "Change" this week-end! 😉
No way could they have played those instruments in that cold and have them stay in tune – especially the stringed instruments.
And I know Yo-Yo Ma's cello is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, Perlman's must be, too. I'll bet its a Stradivarius.
His David, on Obama Definitely High 5's re: Hitting the ground running, In Oval Office in charge on Day one, Meetings, economy, Gitmo sp?, Calls to International Leaders, Israel/Palestine, Hold on all previous Bush dealings for assessment, welcoming Hillary today, seeing Bush off Jan 20 – He's surpassed Great – Magnificent ! Now if Pelosi and Reid would help vs hamper.
Those are beautiful photos. I will pick up
my copy of Time this weekend.
That "concert" was pre-recorded? Did I hear that correctly? Man, that sucks!!! I was thinking how great all of the music was because it was the real deal. UGH
Air forcee one is like the many White House, I would love to just take a tour of any Air Force one.
Caitlin - thanks so much for joining in; you and your friends represent the future.
And what was John Thain thinking? He was getting great credit for finding a partner for Merrill before it tanked.... so why would someone so smart do something like having over a million dollars spent on remodeling his office? Really a shame - he has been such a good leader for years. Feel badly for him.
Oh, yes, Ashley's ho-down. How can we ever really forget?
In that one photo you could really see the lovely detailing on Michelle Obama's yellow Swiss wool lace ensemble.
Once again the AC360 team is unmatched!
I love watching you guys, the political commentary is tremendous
Re the pictures and commentary, Ok, I see Michelle's support for Obama but where is Obama's support for Michelle. No harm done, but he doesn't really support her except give her a compliment every once in a while. It's fine as a personal choice for a couple but let's not give him too much credit here. Michelle makes Obama possible. Obama does not make Michelle possible.
Very interesting about the carbon instruments!
ooooh, I loved that John Williams piece! It was beautiful.
I do have confidence in the President but I wonder if the circumstances could create an un planned for bit of turbulence.
As bad as the economy is now, it’s nothing compared to the dark abyss if the national debit continues to spin out of control. And the overseas investors (China, Saudi Arabia) decide that buying US debit is no longer a safe haven and the US goes bankrupt.
