Quotes of the Day NEWSMAKER QUOTE OF THE DAYFormer Ambassador to Iraq Joseph Wilson talks to Imus about the CIA investigation at the White House and who he believes is behind the leak. “I think it’s important to understand that there are two uncontested facts in this matter. One is the sixteen words that got into the State of the Union Address and the second is the leak of my wife’s name. Neither of those we were partied to. My trip out to Niger was designed to insure that the government had all the facts when it made its decision. The leak of my wife, neither I nor my wife, nor anyone associated with us, or anyone associated with my name would have done that and that includes President George W. Bush who must be just as appalled as everybody else is about that.” SHOW QUOTE OF THE DAYSid talking about the boxing match between him and Bernie.“Bernie beat the hell out of me that day. That’s all it comes down to. But I will say this...when you step into the ring and you think you have all these grand schemes of how you are going to do this and that, as soon as you get punched in the face, it all goes right out the door!”You can get on our e-mailing list today by clicking right here: SUBSCRIBE(Or just read our online edition below.)

Californians are going to the polls, deciding the fate

of their Governor, Gray Davis. If all goes as planned,

we should know by the morning if Davis will remain in

office or if he will be replaced by one of his challengers.

We have correspondents at all the major campaign

headquarters and we’ll have LIVE reports throughout

the morning. Just a week ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger

seemed to be a shoo-in. But now, after a week of

fighting accusations of sexual misconduct, most

political experts say the election is too close to call.

Results are expected to come in very late. Tune in

tomorrow morning to find out if there is a winner,

what the victory means for California

and the rest of the nation.
