Editor's Note: Our viewers of Thursday night’s AC360° enjoyed hearing Richard Quest’s take on the G-20 Summit. Many also continued to express the opinion that the reporting of the First Lady touching the Queen was, as Anderson said, “much ado about nothing.” Those two topics drew the most response from viewers, and we’d love to hear what you have to say about it:

"Bloody Brilliant!" Yes, Jack, Richard Quest was all that, and more. We must have more of him on AC360. Not only is he very intelligent, knowledgeable, insightful, and hysterically funny, there is no question that Anderson lights up like the "shiny new dime" Colbert christened him on LK some months back! No one can make AC laugh like that! But Quest is not a lightweight, and should be used for his skills alone. Notwithstanding that my personal favorite is his skill at reducing Anderson to helpless giggles!

Love that Richard Quest...he's great! He adds a bit of 'spice' to the sometimes boring chatter. Keep him around!

I am really loving your trip to Britain and Richard "argee bargee" is a hoot! Love the animation of the Brits as well as their perspective. America needs more of that; very enjoyable. Hope to see more of it…

Why is everyone making such a big deal about Michelle putting her arm around the Queen of England? If you noticed the Queen also put her arm around Michelle. I think the real question is "Why is the Queen of England manhandling my First Lady?"

As for Michelle Obama saying that there was nothing in her background that would indicate she'd become first lady, well, becoming First Lady is not an accomplishment. Marrying a successful man or woman is not a goal we want to set for young people. Without bragging, I think she shouldn't speak about being First Lady as much as she should talk about working as a lawyer and gaining a leadership position within her firm. She can point out that that's how she met Obama in the first place, because she was at the firm before he was. It's great to be a First Lady and I guess it would be great to be a doctor's wife, but that's not something you tell kids to strive for.
