Coming Soon: An Online Debate
Admit it! You can't wait for the next presidential debate. You've been going cold turkey since the CNN/YouTube extravaganza last week.
Well, all eight Democratic presidential contenders will be showing up for yet another session, but this one will be online-only. Two liberal Web sites -- Slate (owned by The Washington Post Co.) and the Huffington Post -- are teaming up with Yahoo to stage the Sept. 12 cyber-faceoff. It may be New Media, but the moderator will be Old Media television host Charlie Rose.
The irrepressible Arianna Huffington calls it a candidate "mashup"--meaning that Rose will ask questions submitted by online readers and you -- the junkie -- will be able to watch only the parts you want. Only interested in Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- no problem! Just want to scrutinize the candidates' answers on Iraq? Done.
What about the Republican candidates, who still haven't committed to a CNN/You Tube sequel? They are said to be in "discussions" about joining the mashup. If you can't wait, George Stephanopoulos will be chatting them up Sunday on "This Week" with help from -- what else? -- video questions submitted by viewers.
Could the snowman return for an encore?
