Crooks and Liars is co-sponsoring 10 Questions, an interactive web project that will allow for in-depth questions and answers between the public and Presidential candidates from both parties:

Unlike television debates, the 10Questions Presidential Forum makes full use of the web's potential to expand participation in politics. Everyone has an opportunity to ask a question, and to rally support for their question being in the top ten. The candidates have plenty of time to formulate their answers, and can post in-depth replies. Finally, the community will be able to grade the candidates' answers. With large numbers of people participating, the candidates will have an incentive to pay attention. Who knows, maybe we'll even change the course of the election!

Perhaps the best part about this project is, unlike other debating Q&A, 10Questions allows participants and the public to publicly judge whether the candidate actually answered the question given. Also the candidates are given ample time to formulate and present their answers.

Read more and participate! Remember, this is a bi-partisan effort...you can ask questions of ALL the candidates of both parties. We'll be following along as this exciting project progresses.
