On Monday July 23rd 2007 the first of it’s kind happened. What of it’s kind? A democratic presidential candidate debate where questions were submitted by YouTube users and played on national television.
It was really quite revolutionary and some questions were asked that most candidates may have tried to avoid in another format. Now obviously CNN did not show a random video at will as I’m sure they were carefully selected.
The questions and answers are available on Youtube, and if you like politics, this may interest you.
