Where in the World...?
On Saturday, "This Week at War" became "This Week in Politics," which I guess makes Tom Foreman an honorary member of TBPTOT. Dana Bash was in Washington, DC; Candy Crowley was in Richmond, Virginia; and Suzanne Malveaux was in NOLA. Sunday, Candy moved on to Alexandria, Virginia and Suzanne to Manassas, Louisiana. Meanwhile, in NY, Rick Sanchez was filling in for Ali Velshi on "Your Money."
Monday, Alina Cho filled in for Kiran Chetry on "American Morning." Dana Bash was in Annapolis, MD; Candy Crowley in Baltimore, Maryland. John King reported from Weyer's Cave, Virginia. Wolf Blitzer hosted "The Situation Room" from NYC.
On Tuesday, Dana had gone to Alexandria, Virginia; Candy to Madison, Wisconsin; and Suzanne to El Paso, Texas. Wednesday Dana was in DC; Candy in Racine, Wisconsin; Suzanne started out in El Paso then went to San Antonio. Brianna Keiller filled in for Kyra Phillips, while Gary Tuchman was on Capital Hill for the Clemens testimony.
Thursday, both Candy as well as Susan Roesgen went to Dekalb, Illinois to cover the campus shootings. Dana was in Burlington, Vermont. Anderson Cooper hosted "AC360" from NOLA. Friday, Don Lemon was in Dekalb and Zain Verjee was back in DC.
And Michael Ware (above) has been in Islamabad, Pakistan all week in preparation of Monday's historic elections.
