Tonight On The CBS Evening News

Here’s an early look at what we are working on from Anchor and Managing Editor of The CBS Evening News, Katie Couric

Hi everyone,
Last night we witnessed history being made as Americans elected Barack Obama, the first African-American to be chosen as president. Tonight, we’re extending our broadcast to a full hour to bring you all the news - plus analysis from our political team - of this extraordinary election.

The speculation has already begun regarding the key appointments President-elect Obama will need to make. Dean Reynolds reports on what the Obama administration may look like, and how the next president may operate in the Oval Office.

Republicans are also looking ahead - a lot further ahead … to 2012. After losing seats in both chambers of Congress, how will the GOP regroup? And what does the future hold for Sarah Palin? Chip Reid has that part of the story.

Next, Jeff Greenfield will bring out the map, crunch the numbers and explain precisely how Obama pulled off his impressive win. And Byron Pitts will examine the extraordinary effect this election has had on African-Americans, including a profile of those who blazed the trail for Obama.

Americans weren’t the only ones who cheered the election results. Celebrations broke out in Europe, and in Kenya, the home of some of Obama's relatives, a national holiday was declared. Mark Phillips has the story.

In other news, popular sci-fi writer Michael Crichton, the man behind "Jurassic Park," "The Andromeda Strain" and the TV series “ER” has died of cancer at 66. Richard Schlesinger shows us his legacy.

And a story you won't want to miss. It's a portrait of an artist … who made a portrait … that became an emblem of Campaign 2008.

See you tonight,
