Calling all left-wing videographers!

In a couple months, CNN and YouTube will be combining to allow the "public" to ask questions via YouTube videos at upcoming Democratic and Republican Presidential debates. Now we all know that, just like when live audience members are allowed to ask questions, the questions are all pre-screened, so the chance that a different kind of question (example: Do you feel George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice should be prosecuted as war criminals?) will be actually asked are just as unlikely in this YouTube variant as in the normal variant.

But...the difference is that, in the YouTube variant, all the questions will be available online for people to at least view. Which means that a question like that, or one on Palestine, or Cuba, or a host of other issues, if not actually asked of the candidates, will at least have a chance to be heard by a much wider public than reads, say, this blog. Questions have to be less than 30 seconds, but I figure you can put together some nice little video clips framing your question in that time. So get to work! The rules are here.
