TV Captures Moments In Election Coverage
RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. The mental images are often better on radio, but a few scenes last night could only be appreciated on TV. CNN had contributors weighing in as holograms, among them musician will.i.am. Comedian Stephen Colbert, who himself attempted a run in South Carolina's primary, congratulated the nation on electing its first Hawaiian president. And Jesse Jackson stood in Chicago's Grant Park with tears running down his cheeks. It's Morning Edition.
