Dale has been driving CNN's mobile bureau for over a year as it's crisscrossed the nation on the campaign trail. Eight debates, ten primaries, twenty-six states, and fifty thousand
miles later, what does he think?
"it's a great race. It's biggest election in my lifetime."
The Election Express was a warm newsroom in a freezing Iowa, a roving studio where Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama all sat down to be interviewed, and a mobile bureau that's helped CNN to cover this presidential primary with unparalleled depth.
