Questions, not answers, highlight YouTube debate – Democratic Presidential

CHARLESTON, South Carolina (CNN)
This past Monday night 8 Democratic Presidential hopefuls were at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina to participate in the most unusual debate ever.  For the first time they did not field questions compiled by journalists nor did they take questions from the audience.  This debate was hosted by CNN with questions submitted though YouTube, a web site that well known for making online videos. 

The following link is a link to a video, which I think you will enjoy,  that highlights 11 short segments of the debate some of which are quite humorous and, in my opinion,  probably pretty much sumed up as to how the whole debate went.  Actually it was just enough for me as I just feel that from now till the last hour all candidates will change their platforms many times over according to how they are running in the polls.
