Earlier this year, after my "Obama Explained" article, I did an hour-long live Reddit "AMA" [Ask Me Anything] session, of which the transcript is here. I'm about to do another one, on my new article about Romney and Obama as debaters, and my China coverage (and anything else that comes up). I'll start answering questions at 11 a.m. EDT. That is all.
UPDATE: The Reddit Q-and-As are here. I typed and answered questions as fast as I could for 90 minutes. I'll check back in again tonight for a followup round. Thanks to all who participated, even "Senator McCarthy."
