Obama in Spotlight at Today's MySpace/MTV Forum

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Ia. -- The Fix is in eastern Iowa today to co-moderate a MySpace/MTV presidential dialogue with Sen. Barack Obama.

Obama was all over the news this past weekend. In a front-page story in the New York Times, which the Drudge Report linked to for much of Saturday and Sunday, Obama was quoted as promising a more aggressive approach to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton -- arguing that she has yet to flesh out her positions on critical issues like Social Security.

Obama also continued to try to quiet a controversy over his support from gospel singer Donnie McClurkin, whose inflammatory remarks over homosexuality have forced Obama to play defense over the last few days.

We'll be asking Obama about those issues and more when the dialogue begins at 1:30 p.m. ET. (It will be live-streamed on mtv.com and MySpace.com and then replayed tonight at 7 p.m. ET on MTV.)

In the meantime, we want to hear from the Fix community about what questions you would like to ask Obama. I'll monitor the blog throughout the day and do my best to get one or two in.

Sound off in the comments section below, and be sure to check out the archive to read about the first MTV/MySpace candidate forum with John Edwards.
