CNN.COM/360

What if there should be an extra terrestrial life visiting Earth, would he want to go?

It must have been tough for that guy to have been convicted for the crime that he had nothing to do. Sometimes, it is hard to change our decision when we believe something.

In Japan, jury system will be introduced soon and I am curious about this system. I don't know much about American law, but if he had insisted on his innocence and had been convivted, there should be some problems. Maybe law system, or maybe stereotype.


On the previous show, he said he can do many things there. We can check out blog, beat 360 photo, and even make coffee there!
Anderson added a lot more to do tonight! We can do crossword puzzle and they'd do the laundry, ironing, press and fold!

What elese would he add!? And what would you like them to do there?

Anderson, please do a story about why the policital talk show hosts are so against Hiliary Clinton. In
their zeal to attach her they are letting Barack Obama get a pass on the issues. Is the "the old boys
club" protecting each other so no
woman gets through this glass ceiling they have so sucessfully protected for centuries. Are they
being anti-femmine while accusing her of playing the race card?

My deep concern is the agressive manner by which Mrs. Clinton is portrayed negatively in the media ( including members of the CNN staff)& so-called Pondits. Some so filled with raw hatred that it is impossible for them to hide their hatred for her, which makes me cringe. I noticed the way Mr. Obama is treated as if he is a very delicate piece of china not to be touched. It seems to me the Media & its Compatriots are so afraid of being defined as racists that fear of that label is causing them to give Obama pass after pass, & treating him like he is the next COMING! Going back to the last debate in which John Edwards was involved, Wolfe asked the first question of Obama, & instead of answering Wolfe's question he retorted by accusing Mrs. Clinton about the Walmart's Board .

Mrs. Clinton responded( rightly so) & what did the Media do?,they practically assasinated her. No one ever mentioned that Obama was first to open the negativity door. It seems to me everyone wants to bottle feed him, & protect him from big bad Clintons, but he is a man involved in an adult process & if he is too thin-skinned to take what he gives then he should get out of this game of Politics.

At no time have I noticed the Media commented when he was negative against Mrs. Clinton, but even when she is positive, the Media gives her HELL!. Its as if those in the media has given him Carte Blanche to go negative against her because there will be no consequence. No one ever challenges him on being specific about many of his ideas/programs. Being Inspirational in speeches does not make one experienced enough to preside over the most powerful country in the world. At that same debate ( I mentioned earlier) he was asked about his "weakness", & he commented about not being organized & lack attention to deatils. I really could go on for the rest of the night listing his flaws, but of course the Media does not see or hear the same as I do.

Mrs. Clinton has been crucified over & over every hour of day, while Obama has been anointed "The Untouchable Prince OF Change". I wish someone would have the guts to ask him, "where is the beef?".
What does his Resume says about his Leadership, & Managerial abilities, since he is vying for the highest job in the land. Why is he not being questioned on these important matters?.

By the way I am a black female, who have not forgotten the good old days with the Clintons, & how wonderful those years were for our Community. Those in the black community who have betrayed them because of ethnicity I hope will live to regret turning their backs on Mrs. Clinton. She is "tried & true". What does anyone really know about this savoir( to many)?.

Anderson why are you so negative when you do a story on Obama. He is the best candidate for President. Many commentaries always point of Mrs. Clinton's best points, but really stress many negative views on Obama. The way you stress differences on both candidates,Obama get the short end of the stick. Many people feel Obama is an experience and competent person to be President.

Everyone seem to think (commentaries) especially think everyone feel as they do. Many blacks appreciate the Clinton years and realize that we can try something new and step up to the plate. To say blacks always have to be in the same place at the same time, or wait your turn is insane. When will this happen? When will all our Fathers and Mothers realize times and events have changed,and there is nothing wrong with new ideals and hopes that Obama has amazingly brought about. Hillary was not President,her husband was. Obama has the experience,judgement, and wisdom to do the job. Hillary need to stop about her experience, many ones have that but many can't face the challenges of being a leader of the people. Obama has shown he can and will.

Anderson:
In regards to Mrs. Clinton picture today, I would say that she's probably saying: OH G.! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT? BUT
I'LL PRETEND I KNOW THE ANSWER.

Hilda said...

I would like to respond to the anonymous writer that said that everyone at CNN is treating Obama like a china plate; that: You anonymous writer is analyzing, thinking and feeling what is not really there. Your message reflects what you are actually describing other os doing, BEING RACISSSSSSSSSSYOURSELFFFFFFFFF! ANALYZE THAT NOW.
By the way Obama is what he is and that's that. Better than Ms. hatter.

tried and true at what taking money from lobbyist,making decisions based on what's popular not simply saying she made a mistake when she voted for war? she is not accountable let's not forget bill clinton did not have experience and the country gave him an opportunity. This is directed to the black woman who thinks that our community is picking based on race. Politics is like retail sales you are only as good as the last good sale. hillary is just like bill not accountable. My question to you is oral sex not sex excuse me i guess not mr president didn't penetrate. The only thing hillary is tried and tested at is standing by an unfaithful man.

I see Hillary Clinton getting all of the publicity. Barack Obama should be getting more, because he is winning.He is also running against two people. Hillary and Bill, which they both need to sit down. They have already had their turn in the "White House." They can not be trusted. Bill was up for enpeachment and he is a lier. He lied to the Nation.

Bay Buchanan made me laugh out loud tonight. She insinuated that the Republican party does not cheat on their spouces or lie to the voters. She needs to wake up. Read my lips. Newt's "CONTRACT WITH AMERICA" contracted the U.S. industrial manufacuring jobs over seas. The first thing Bush Jr. did was have a secret meeting with all the major CEO's in the U.S. with no press coverage at all. He immediately tells Americans they spend too much then changes that to "spend more". It has been lie after lie after lie from George Bush Jr. ever since. Republicans don't lie to voters, ha,ha,ha. They have stolen the American Dream, literally. Talk about fuzzy math, accounting practices did a 360 the day he took office. He is more worried about not letting a few people that really need it have health insurance than he is about the billions of dollars missing in his no bid contract war. Didn't he say he was a uniter and a compassionate conservative? Yeah right. Republicans don't lie.

Why is everybody discussing Hillary Clinton's experience in the Senate, as if that qualifies her to automatically be a better President, she has no more experience as being a PRESIDENT THAN "President OBAMA does, so she's been in the Senate longer, how does that automatically mean she'll run our country well!

Bill said...

Hillary Clinton is a disgraceful flip flopper, a modern day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. If she were to win the Democratic Nomination, I would vote for the spoiler. Nobody wants a person like her, man or woman leading this country.

The problem with the Clinton machine is that they planned their campaign to defeat John Edwards. The Clintonites never envisioned Obama being in the race at this point. They thought that Obama wouldn't muster any support and would be one of the first to drop out, leaving Edwards whom the advisers thought Hillary could shred to pieces following his failed vice presidential bid. As such, Hillary's advisers have no idea how to combat Obama's message. A message that,ironically, the Clinton campaign has tried to copy without much success.

I am a 50 years old, college graduate, Black and a proud Conservative Republican. I live in OHIO, but I have lived in DC, CA, FL GA, VA, MD. Every state and region have different concerns. I believe NAFTA has been good for some areas and for others it has not. No one know what any of these three people running for the highest political office will do. But, I do know that every successful person in America has started with a dream, some hope, a personal will with a passion. We can forget about what Bill Clinton did in office. This is a different day, different time, different world and we as a people are different. If Obama wins, America will win. He has a vision and more importantly a inner passion that speaks to the heart. That is what this country needs. Forget about experience. He will be surrounded by the best minds in the country to assist. He has the better judgement! He should pick Hillary as a running mate. If Hillary wins, we will win. However, she will have to fight because she has always had to fight in every aspect of her life. The Presidency will be no different. The job itself for all will be an experience. She should pick Barack as her running mate. (She said, her research and information she had, caused her to vote for the war. Shame on you.) If she fights, she will need someone to show her how to work across the isle. Barack can help her with that. McCain, I love you man but this is not 1968 or when your aircraft caught fire. This is a new day. War is not the answer. Protect our interest, yes. But it is about Judgement. If you get the call, I should/may vote for you. I believe in your values. I question your involvement in the Keating Five, special interest, lobbyist. However, he without sin, cast the first stone. Your character works for me. Your policies do not. Good Stand on Cunningham. You are your own man. Get Huckabee, use Romey, Rudy and Ron Paul in your adminstration if you win. They all bring some skill sets you do not have that will be needed to bring this country together.

I truly can not understand why you and some others from media give legitimacy to Mr.Obama when he talks about Not voting for the Iraq's war. As far as we know during the year 2002 and 2003, the United States Congress and the United States senate voted on the Iraq's war. However, During those years Mr. Obama was not a member of the US Senate nor he was a member of the United States Congress. Therefore, he was not qualified to vote on the Iraq's War. Mr. Obama should not credit himself as if he was a member of the United States senate or Congress on 2003. In reality, we do not know if Mr. Obama was a member of the United States Senate on that year he might have voted for the war having the same information as the other senators had on their Senate briefings. The strange thing is that no one has challenged him as to this question that he was not asked to vote nor he was qualified to vote for the Iraq's war on 2003. Mr. Obama became a US Senator on 2004 year after the war has already started.

Barack Hussein Obama is not fit to be a Senator and not to mention the next President of our Country.....
If he become our President! There will be World War III on our Country hands not good at all.
What he is not telling the American People...What he really has in store for us is..His main goal is to unite all the Third World countries....and then War will began on the United States... This comes from my heart and deepest feeling... I think Barack Hussein Obama is a Iranian agent for Hussein and Bin Lidin..This is the only other way someone can attack on the United States...Just think about this it can be so true...I just wish others would see this too. Thank you, for your time Connie

I think America needs healing and we will begin to find the current dialog will prove promising in the search for American unity. I think a person coming from the black experience and the black church wants people to know this is the place blacks go to lick there wounds of oppression and seek validation from God and one another.

I remember my mother looking down in my eyes in 1969 when I was four years old off to school and telling me with all my innocence that I may experince people that might not like me because of my color. Evey black person in America has to look in the eyes of there baby and warn them about the hate they will face, because the shock of it can change you.. It hurts to bad much not to talk about it. Black people are not different until we were made different. This is a people that were thought of as animals yet trapped in a human body with human feelings and wanting to live free just like we are now. We are talking of inherited hate and that has no reflection other than systematic is so sad. We have hate in this country that stems from slavery and the more we sweep and ignore the worse it will get.. Obama was clear to reject these views and I am sure he would never think in the manor of Wright. The good thing in all of this is the conversation is open. I hope this is the beginning of healing in America.. I still have hope.

Obama lies to America's face.
For arguments sake let's say Obama was not in attendance during the many tirades of Jeremy Wright( not due respect of title). Does he honestly think American are naieve enough to think his fellow churh members did not tell him about these(according to Obama out of the ordinary tirades) it would be the talk of the Church. Besides they were taped you think Obama didn't get or see a copy? The entire congregation what cheering on the minister and agreeing with him during the tapes so they are as bad as he is or they would have fired him. This is not news to Obama. He is playing the role of a Politician. He just now found out after 20 years at this Church and His no blood Uncle relationship. Obama you better climb back on that turnip truck because we didn't fall off of it you did.
(1) Obama lies about Church connection
(2) Obama Lies about House purchase deal( Resko did not give Obama a $300,000 discout out of the goodness of his heart while he is defrauding Federal Funds
(3) Obama lied about the amount of funds Resko raised for his campaign
(4) Obama lied about back door talks with Canada about NAFTA. Memo proved that
(5) Obama has good friend who is a confirmed national terriost who wanted to blow up the Pentagon and the White house
(6) Michelle Obama did not mispeak as they later tried to explain away she was just not focused and spoke the truth. The teachings of Wright.

There are to many ties to anti social behavior for this man to be a viable canidate for the highest office in the land. It is hard to get the job but it is impossible to get them out of office for at least four years.

I am not suggesting either of the other possible canidates but I know that Obama could end up a national embarassment instead of a National leader.

when michelle obama said "for the first time I feel proud to be an american "no body said nothing ,did these two obamas just crawl out from under a rock ,and get handed a golden wand or what?barrack has not said one thing about how he plans to do all he said he wants to do.If anything he is going to make this racial ticket a whole lot worse ,He talks so good ,he must have did a lot of reading or studying on great presidents likeJOHN F. KENNEDY, BILL CLINTON.and soon to be president HILLARY,anybody can say what OBAMA says he wants to do ,but without specifics how can all his followers trust him in the WHITE HOUSE. and when a couple of your guests said ,this was the best speech they have heard in a long time, then why did he not say anything about his EARMARKS OH I forgot he has a golden wand.

The day after Obama returned from Washington he did a TV interview I think with Major Garrett.

In the interview Obama was ask were you present during Rev Wright's radical talks... Obama said I was not in the pew when any radical statements were made by Rev Wright... In fact when I was present Rev Wright only spoke of Jesus, God, Love and spirituality..

Garrett pressed Had you been present would you have confronted Rev Wright? Obama said yes I would Have. Garrett pressed again sternly.. If you had been present during these radical sermons would you have left the Church? Obama YES I WOULD HAVE LEFT THE CHURCH...

Now when he gets scared he is going to get caught up in this lie to America he comes way to late with his big Race Speech where in his opening statements he says was I present during some of the radical sermons? yes I was.. was I aware of the controverity involving Rev Wright yes I was..


People he out and out Lied to America on National TV... Is someone not going to call him to task on this... His speech was not sincere it was damage control based on lies..

I don't understand why the media will not press the tough questions and issues with Obama...

Clinton or McCain can sneeze and the media flocks them... But Obama is treated as fine China that might break if offened..


Would someone please make this public to America....

People say Obama is being given a pass and they point to Rev. Wright. His comments were inpolitic, but he is noyt the candidate. Sen. Clinton tells a story then adds to it three times and it is never shown like Rev. Wright(over and over) on CNN and is not just called a lie. Who is really getting special treatment.

I have met many federal members of parliament. (I am in Canada), for the most part they get a bad wrap. I have found most of them to be very hard working people. I am willing to bet you USA politicians are the same kind of hard working people.
Obama is a crismatic person and a very impressive speaker, he seems to have come to the for-front with ease.
John Kennedy was crismatic and came to the forfront with ease, but he couldn't get things through the congress.
The reason is that the very hard working people aren't really inclined to cooperate with someone who has had a fairly easy ride to the forfront.
This is one of the most important elections in years, LIKE FOR THE WHOLE PLANNET.
Hillary is a fighter and proven.
This election is to important to trust an unproven person as president, especially a crismatic one. Crismatic does not get the job done, work does.

I am so tired of politicians and political analyst saying on TV that the Democratic party will come together in November. They keep saying that the economy, the war, and other political talking points are the most important thing to voters. Well I am a middle class, white, and a Democrat. I have voted Democrat consistantly for 38 years. The most important thing to me, my family, and circle of friends is patriotism, then the issues. The Office of President of the United States holds the same symbolism to us as the U.S. Flag. The Office of President repesents America just as much as Old Glory. We want a President that we can respect his judgement, character, and honesty, then we will discuss issues. Senator Obama cannot carry my voting group in the primary or the general because of his elist remarks, Rev. Wright for 20 years, breaking bread with Bill Ayers, purchasing a house from a man under indictment with an unexplainably large d iscount, his problem with the flag pin, Michelle Obama's statements and thesis, Obama's books, his Islamic connections in Kenya, Loius Farrakan's million man march and there are other things, the list goes on. I just wish you could talk to some of those middle class voters and get their opinion and quit letting politicians, media, and political analyst say what we think or why we are voting the way we vote. These people are as out of touch as Barack Obama. Obama supporters and some political analyst which try to appear as impartial keep insuinating that black voters will rebel and vote McCain if Clinton is the nominee. Well let me tell you there are more middle class americans who feel it is a matter of patriotism that will go McCain in November than there are black voters. It is going to be a problem either way you go and the DNC has created this mess. We feel if John McCain can withstand 5 years in a prisoner of war camp we can stand 4 more years of a Republican president before we will disgrace the office.

This political fisco between Obama and Hillary as being one of most crucial race in the recent times,but for the first time Anderson cooper you so bais, so parochial and egocentric more so chuvenistic, i thought you could be dispersionate and handle your programm more professionally. stop the nonsense and race card you are playing with hillary, balance your report and comment , always bring the right supporter of hillary to battle the supporter of Obama.\
Actually your video comment of a child bitting the leg of Hillary was the most rediculus and insensitive things video of all times, i guess sometimes u are really sick and maybe Obama as promised u a portfolio.......... hear me mr oppourtunist, you cannot speak for we Blacks , not even the insane martins who, in his life i thought he's never objective or realistic even when the naked truth is facing him..... you guys are notts........if you think that video is funny you better ask you mum .Is time you let off the air and let have a new blood to doing the right thing. Hillary maight have been the wife of a president but she's the solution in all ramnification.............Time will tell even if she looses she will be resepected ,she's good friend of the black community, she as salvage her life for the emancipation of black freedom and an advocate of peace.
I challenge you yo your conscience, what will you do about going to Iraq after 9/11, are you saying you will not support it or is her fault the Bush handle the war wrongly. its always seems right when you are on the fence to critizied or act as if you are an activist......... Activist are not administrator........Have you ever question the rationale of Obama not supporting the war, does he really have the fact that there's no terrorist in Iraq or saddam was not a treat to United State......What is the judgement then?.... Like the wise one normally says the son of the sun will always look at the sun.
Redeem yourselve and toll the path of justice. pls balance your anlysis.

I'm just wondering why the news media such as CNN and others are not reporting the automated phone calls to N.C. voters telling them that they're not registered to vote when the voters themselves know that this is not true. Who's behind this? Could it be another upset coming; let's say like P.A. everytime she gets a governors endorsement she wins! She'll win tomorrow because she's a cheat & a liar.

I am from New York and following Senator Hillary for the past 15 years, I've always found her to be a thoughtful and insightful speaker and debator.Therefore, I am flabbergasted that she would make an inflamatory and negative inferential statement as the one she made about the primary and the assassination of Robert Kennedy.
First of all, the timing of such a faux pas is inexplicable, foolhardy, and inexcusable; coming a few days after the sad disclosure of the life threating news of the beloved Senator Ted Kennedy.
She cannot claim that she "misspoke", her logical statement conveyed her message as clear as the intent. Her problem is that she believed that it would be overlooked as her previous reference to the election and assassination. To put it mildly; this is an incipid statement. It is , what it is. This is not a tea party discussion. She was responding to a question about her competing in an election for the highest job in the WORLD! Unfortunately, she flunked the interview, including that for the VP position. Many of my friends forgave you for the Iraq vote. Then we forgave you when you "misspoke" on the Bosnia episode. At present, I am unable to practice my catholic faith's teaching- forgiveness. I'm not sure that my friends will either. This time you have stepped to far..,
