Dan Abrams’ Closing Argument; Verdict Host Says Goodbye

Last night, Dan Abrams hosted his final telecast of Verdict on MSNBC, which has been cancelled to make way for a new show by Rachel Maddow.

Over the course of his final hour, Mr. Abrams discussed Barack Obama’s looming VP choice, took President Bush to task for his "unprecedented use of so-called signing statements," read fan mail, and amusingly talked via phone to Tucker Carlson, who Mr. Abrams introduced as a "fellow MSNBC cancelled show host" (clip above).

"By the way, this is the third goodbye show I’ve done at MSNBC in the past five years," said Mr. Abrams, before signing off. "So don’t count us out entirely."
