DES MOINES, IA.--In a few minutes, the Obama traveling press corps--filing photos, stories and blogs in Hy-Vee hall here--will muster to the Des Moines airport to join the winner of the Iowa caucus--Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on a charter flying to Portsmouth, N.H. Round two starts now.

There are 50 reporters, photographers and documentary makers on Air Obama which will land in New Hampshire at about 3 a.m. We'll go to a hotel for a few hours and leave at 8:15 a.m. for a rally at the airport an hour later.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is flying to Manchester, N.H. tonight with a planeful of press who follow her.

Democrats start a furious round of campaigning in New Hampshire on a very condensed schedule.

On Friday night, the contenders left in the Democratic race make separate appearences at a New Hampshire Democratic Party 100 Club Dinner in Milford. There is a Democratic debate late Saturday night, preceded by a GOP debate at St. Anselm College.
