About That Clever Young Video Blogger (Who just happens to work for Politico.com)

His name: James Kotecki
His claim to fame: He interviews (and submits debate questions to) political candidates on his video blog... Like this one:

Wow! Kotecki even gets coverage from The New York Times.

We don’t know which videos CNN, which is carrying the debate, will pick to present to the candidates. But most of them seem tame and respectful — a lot like those submitted for the Democrats’ YouTube debate in July. And generally the questioners seem more interested in broad, longstanding issues than in any “gotcha” sandbagging.

A man who teaches English in China addresses the candidates from his classroom and asks how they can ensure that American students will be able to compete with his Chinese students in 15 or 20 years.

Another man speaks from an airplane seat and wants to know how the candidates will reduce the hassles of commercial flying.

Hm. That Times story didn't mention that Kotecki works for politico.com and only recently changed his political party affiliation to Independent.

Today's Lesson: Know your clever young (possibly politically planted) video bloggers!

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
