We are insanely busy today, doing hourly live updates on the network and crashing together political and financial coverage for tonight's broadcast.
Because many people have asked, I wanted to say that I, along with many other journalists, certainly hope and expect to be given the opportunity to interview the GOP Vice Presidential nominee, Gov. Sarah Palin. We issued the standing request for an interview the instant Gov. Palin was named to the ticket, and have followed up numerous times on various fronts with the campaign. In anticipation of such an event, please post questions that you would like to see asked, and we will make every attempt to work your question into the mix during an interview.
