I have mentioned it before in this blog... but I will say it again. The crowds outside Rockefeller Center seem bigger than ever this year. This spot seems to have become America's crossroads... and a destination for so many during the holidays. In the years since 9/11 ... it has been a pleasure to watch people return to what some of us believe is the best city in the world. That said... we move on to tonight's broadcast.
Iraq is on our radar. Secretary Rumsfeld is in Baghdad... out in the green zone... saying farewell to the American troops. However, this was another difficult day in Iraq… with more sectarian killings. NBC's Jim Maceda is in Baghdad tonight.
NBC's Jane Arraf is in eastern Baghdad embedded with some of the American forces helping to train Iraqi troops... what could be part of an American exit strategy.
We're following Senator Barak Obama's first trip to New Hampshire... as he considers a possible run for the Presidency. NBC's Chip Reid is in New Hampshire.
Also... the wife of the poisoned spy is speaking out... and pointing fingers at those she believes are responsible for her husbands death. NBC's Ron Allen reports.
The weak U.S. dollar has foreign tourists flocking to this country in search of a good deal. CNBC's Margaret Brennan is covering that story.
NBC's Tom Costello shows us the spectacular launch of the space shuttle last night.
And the effort to save the Florida everglades. NBC's Mark Potter reports.
It's all coming up tonight. We hope you'll join us.
