If all the weeks in this year to come are going to last as long as this one seemed, it's going to be a tough slog, and I'm not even running for office. We're capping off the week with a crazy day -- planning our travels for next week, and our debate Tuesday night among the Democrats in Las Vegas, a place I last visited on Wednesday of this week. Before we do Nightly News, I get to go upstairs and tape Conan O'Brien for tonight.
I've been trying to stay on top of the avalanche of emails and posts following our political coverage (and my essay) this week. To the gentleman who wrote about the Obama speech and his use of a teleprompter - it's an issue I raised following the Iowa Caucuses.
We have some great coverage to show you tonight: on the economy, the president's trip, the campaign, and our Friday Making a Difference segment. Thanks for joining us all this week -- next week also promises to be eventful. Have a good weekend.
