The big news this week was that, despite predictions, Sen. Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary in N.H. But a few major U.K. papers went to press with a different story -- that Sen. Barack Obama won the election.

Patrick Goss,'s technology editor, summed up the gaffes: "'Iowa... Hampshire... America? Barack Obama's incredible journey' announced the edition of The Independent that landed on my desk this morning, with a page three feature on 'How Senator Obama gained the momentum.' The Telegraph's front page story was titled 'McCain and Obama take second round,' and The Times' article on the U.S. election in '08 talks of Hillary Clinton watching her support 'melt away.'"
