Dems Have Plans Beyond Debate Stage Tonight

The Democratic presidential candidates have big plans online before, during, and after tonight's CNN/YouTube debate.

Here's a quick rundown of some campaigns' plans:

-- Hillary Clinton: The campaign sought submissions for its 30-second candidate video set to air tonight. Female supporters, under the banner Club44, will meet at house parties nationwide. The senator will attend a post-debate party in Charleston.

-- John Edwards: The former senator will participate in a live webcast after the debate. He will answer questions submitted to the campaign prior to and during the debate. As a statement from the Edwards campaign states, "By taking questions from third-party sites, a larger and more diverse audience will be able to participate in the live webcast." Watch the webcast on the Edwards campaign Web site, on his MySpace page, at CommunityCounts.us, Ustream.tv, and Care2.com.

-- Chris Dodd: The campaign promises "wall to wall" coverage all night long. The campaign will once again activate the "Talk Clock," which was used during the last CNN debate to criticize the format. There's also a pre-game show with Dodd campaign staffers, a live chat with Dodd in the debate spin room following the debate, and a post-game show with Dodd senior staff, all in a special section of the Web site.

-- Barack Obama: The campaign's South Carolina Web site has been providing coverage all day through its blog. The Illinois senator is attending a pre-debate rally in Charleston, and his campaign is hosting a debate watch party during the event.

-- Bill Richardson: The New Mexico governor's campaign is hosting a live chat on its Web site for campaign supporters. The candidate's wife is in South Carolina, making rare campaign appearances. (Watch video of one appearance here.)
