You Choose '08 Spotlight: Mitt Romney

By Steve Grove

Head of News and Politics

Ever wanted to speak with the future President of the United States? Using the power of YouTube, you can! Announcing the newest phase of our You Choose ’08 platform, the Spotlight. Starting today, every Presidential candidate will have one week in the Spotlight on our News & Politics page, where they'll be available to engage YouTube users in a video dialogue. 

Here's how it works: Candidates will post a video asking the YouTube community a question, and you'll have a week to upload response videos. The candidates will monitor your reply videos and, before the week is through, will post another video reflecting on what they've seen.

This is your chance to engage the leaders who are competing for the most powerful position in the country. Let them know what you think and keep an eye on their replies. This is a great chance to get to know the candidates better by speaking across the level platform that is politics on YouTube.

So who's first in the Spotlight? Watch the video below or go to the News & Politics page and check out the top video...then post your response videos. The more thoughtful and creative the better -- see if you can get the candidates to respond directly to your issues and ideas.
