WT? on CNN’s AC360!

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

Hi everyone, Jacob Soboroff here. Coming to you with this quick update from our nation’s capital. Here’s the photographic evidence:

As you know, we’re gearing up for the 2008 election. We’ve started by submitting a question to the CNN/YouTube debate taking place July 23 in South Carolina. Last night I was on Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN. He aired our question, and after the video finished Anderson explained the outdated reason why we vote on Tuesday. If you missed it, you can check the segment below. During the segment you may notice our video looks like it was cropped funny. That’s because CNN didn’t preserve our widescreen aspect ratio! Keep your fingers crossed that CNN runs our important question again during the debate, and stay tuned for much more from us in the months ahead!

    Even though CNN didn’t preserve your widescreen aspect ratio, you still look handsome. You are the next Anderson Cooper. Quite informative. Nice work.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
