About last night

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

It's now clear the television audience was sizable last night. It was quite an event we witnessed, and afterward we flew home overnight -- basically a laundry and re-fueling stop -- and then it's off to St. Paul after one broadcast in New York. We'll be in Minnesota until next Thursday night, when we leave for Los Angeles for the Stand Up To Cancer live special. With 67 days to go until we pick a new President, it's going to be like this for a while.

It got even more interesting today with Sen. McCain's pick of Gov. Sarah Palin... nicely setting up the excitement over the gathering in St. Paul.

So please join us from New York tonight, and then we'll see you from another great American City.
