Presidential debates are all set to go online. According to Search Engine Journal, Yahoo!, Slate and Huffington Post are going to host series of presidential debates between the Democratic and Republican Party candidates.
These debates will be hosted by Charlie Rose of PBS. Viewers will be able to ask questions in real time and vote on responses given by candidates. While candidates have used online media for campaigning, this show is first of its kind because of the level of interaction offered. The debates are scheduled to start around Labor Day.
Charlie Rose has said that Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“2008 will be a momentous year for the electoral process in America, thanks in large part to technology and politics connecting like never before.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
