Preview: CNN/YouTube Debate Questions, Part I
The second CNN/YouTube Debate is Wednesday night, so we'll spend some of our blog space this week reviewing voter-submitted questions. After sitting through hours of low resolution video, from Christopher Walken impressions of Rudy Giuliani to another question from the notorious Billiam the Snowman, we bring to you the some of the videos you may or may not see during Wednesday's Republican showdown on CNN.
We start with questions about the Iraq War.
The first video, "iRaq" uses the iPhone commercial as a template to ask what is next in the war with Iraq.
Next, John Bauman of Chapel Hill, N.C. asks all the candidates where they draw the line on getting Congressional approval before using the military. Bauman cites the Oct. 9 GOP debate in Michigan when Rudy Giuliani and others agreed that Congressional approval was "desirable" but could be overridden if there is a need to act immediately.
"It really depends on exigency of the circumstances and how legitimate it is, that it really is an exigent circumstance. It's desirable, it's safer to go to Congress, get approval from Congress," Giuliani said. "If you're really dealing with an exigent circumstance, then the president has to act in the best interests of the country."
The final question comes from Stewart Zamudio from Hauppauge, N.Y. He wants to know what each of the candidates plan to do to restore interest and pride in the armed forces.
What do you think of these questions? Have you seen any good ones? Leave links to them in the comments section below.
