By Steve Grove

Head of News And Politics, YouTube

Senator Barack Obama charged into the You Choose '08 Spotlight this week by asking how you can help restore a sense that "politics matters." In his Spotlight video, he asks you to share your stories on the work that you are doing at the neighborhood level to make the country better.

Obama's campaign plans to stitch your video stories together to demonstrate what the next generation is doing in public service. At 45, Obama is the youngest of the Democratic candidates on the You Choose '08 platform. He's served in the Senate since 2004, when he became the third African-American senator since Reconstruction.
