Welcome to the Election Express

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="CNN's Election Express has been criss-crossing America."] ABOARD THE ELECTION EXPRESS (CNN) - "This one is actually fun," says Dale Fountain, driver and captain of the Election Express.
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.

Producer Josh Rubin gives an in depth tour of the Election Express, coming soon to a general election near you: See part 1 and part 2 of his behind-the-scenes peek.

    Be sure to realize that most of the "I'M NOT VOTING FOR OBAMA, I'D RATHER VOTE MCCAIN" comments are actually by Republicans trying to further dichotomize the party...get off here and go campaign for old man McCain

    Obama,Clinton or McCain, 12 months from nothing will have changed. We will still have an energy crisis, will no real plan to resolve it, social security will still be broken and health care reform will be a lost cause. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! If voting actually changed anything, it would be illegal.

    George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, etc... now joined by John McCain all need to speak one sentence.

    "Unparalleled depth," my foot. I can't count the number of times CNN has wasted time dwelling on stupid non-issues throughout this campaign. Case in point: using the Political Ticker to advertise yourself. Nice work, CNN.
