Carol Rubra is today's programme producer - here is her early email to the team.

Good morning,

Kenya - Opposition leaders are making their way to Uhuru Park for the million people rally but it's not yet clear how many supporters will try to reach the stadium. There are also various diplomatic efforts to calm the situation. Paul is on his way. Any thoughts on who we should interview?

Iowa - The US begin the process of selecting candidates for the Presidential elections tonight. David Grossman is there.

Politics in 2008 - We have a political preview of the coming year. What are the issues, challenges and flashpoints for each of the parties? Our political panel are booked.

Flashman - George Macdonald Fraser - misogynist, misanthrope and all round cad - yet the novels are loved so what do people see in Flashman?

Or are there other stories we should be doing?

I did A level American politics only last year (and got an A) and yet I still don't exactly know about primaries and caucases- any chance newsnight can give us a (almost) layman's description?! BBC news 24 attempted it earlier but the correspondent didn't seem to know either- but I bet David Grossman does!!!

I suppose something on the railway chaos was too much to hope for.
