From the CNN crawl again:
"Sarah Palin is looking ahead to the future."
Really? I thought she was looking back in the past. This statement is so obvious as to be meaningless. If you really must, why not just say "looking to the future"? "Ahead" means "in the future.
I don't know what Sarah Palin is planning for herself, but maybe the CNN crawl writers can plan their sentences a little better.
