Tonight the Democratic presidential candidates are doing a debate where the questions will come from YouTube users. The almost 3,000 videos submitted are of surprisingly high-quality.

The campaigns must be a little nervous about tonight. As Ben Smith points out, there’ll probably be some questions that are more direct than anything a traditional moderator would ever dare ask. (Predictably, folk have submitted videos asking Hillary if her husband has committed adultery since leaving office.)


I expect we’ll see a show along these lines in the next election here. What would you ask Brown, Cameron and Campbell?
