I asked Jim Spellman, with CNN, if it would be ok to start a Q&A thread and he agreed. He wrote the following: "Sure...i'll chip away at it when I can. Couple of things....if I don't want to answer something because of some issue with sourcing or confidentiality or something like that I just wont answer it, but if I just don't know I'll try to clearly state that. Also if anyone is in more of a hurry they can always get me on twitter @jimspellmancnn since i'm always on that on my phone." Thanks Jim! Fire away!
