    Thanks for the pictures Johnnie, great ones.

    He is so lovely there, but I hope he will not catch a cold while he doing his great work.

    JT is so good in his profession, I think he is the best

    Sky have already made a tweak to their graphics. They’ve changed the design at the end of the strap:

    CNN’s coverage was pretty good last night, nice graphics and a election centre. Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper presenting the coverage.

    So, Huckabee and Obama win the opening caucus and surprisingly John Edwards takes second place for the Democrats, leaving Clinton in third.

    Late runner Fred Thompson takes third behind Mitt Romney for the Republicans. McCain ends the night in 4th place.

    Still plenty of time to go, The first official primary takes place on Tuesday 8th January from New Hampshire.

    Fox News has a election car. In a piece called Election Link, Carl Cameron is driving from location to location in New Hampshire. He’s currently in Bedford, NH.

    ia0 0107223654_10.jpg ia0 – Carl inside the car.

    Chris Wallace will have a 2 hour special tomorrow on Fox from 4-6pm ET/9-11GMT.

    I’m surprised ITV News only has one correspondent covering the U.S. election, maybe with no news channel, they only need one. I guess James Mates or someone alike will fly over to cover ‘Super Duper Tuesday’ on 5th Feb.

    Today, John Irvine asked Hilary a few questions while she was signing autographs, she answered and thanked John for covering their elections. BBC correspondent Justin Webb also asked questions which fell on deaf ears.

    Where is JT this evening? Is he in Manchester, New Hampshire yet? I haven’t got access to a television at the moment.

    I saw Jon Sopel was there earlier on BBC News 24.

    John McCain wins the Republican vote according to CNN and Fox – Romney in second place.

    CNN is predicting that John Edwards will finish in third place for the Democrats. NBC saying Clinton has won the Democrat vote.

    CNN’s Election studio is quite impressive. I’m currently working on a Election subsite for the main site, I’ll post some CNN images there.

    Have there been any leading presenters and correspondents from the UK networks covering the Michigan Republican primary today?

    Nothing from ITN or Sky. I’m not sure if the BBC done anything.

    More Candidate/Media problems. This time Mitt Romney gets into a splat with a AP correspondent.

    Dominic Waghorn is in Washington, I presume, for Super Tuesday.
