Obama's YouTube Town Hall

YouTube excitedly announced this a.m. that their correspondent(s) will interview President Obama at the White House next week. Sure enough, you can submit your own questions via YouTube and then vote on them. Perhaps to ensure that the medical marijuana folks don't reprise their past glory, YouTube, owned by Google (whose CEO is an ally of Obama's) will choose "some" of the top questions and put them to the President.  Here's hoping YouTube chooses tough questions, and not softballs. ("What's your jobs plan?") Google-YouTube calls this "Your State of the Union." The White House calls it SOTU 2.0.
