Iowa Caucuses 2008: I traveled to Des Moines, Ia., with the student media network as student journalists to cover the caucuses. We were thrown in among CNN and the BBC to mingle and fight for the best camera spot. Blogs, stories, photos and stand-ups were posted here. I was able to see the Clintons, Mitt Romney, Chris Dodd, Fred Thompson and was at the location where Obama gave his winning speech, but just missed him. Oh well, I saw him in STL. šŸ™‚
