Democratic presidential frontrunners Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton layout more details about how they would govern for the first group of voters to decide the party's nominee. Sen. Obama was in New Hampshire detailing an ambitious $18 billion plan to improve K-12 education and to recruit more teachers at better pay. Sen. Clinton, who was prevented from landing in Iowa because of fog, spoke with residents via telephone about regulating imported food. She promised to reschedule the trip to Iowa.

NPR correspondents Don Gonyea, traveling with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, and David Greene, traveling with New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, report.
