Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Live from the debate: Emergency Cheese

I just spent a minute talking with James Kotecki, “probably the world’s foremost expert on YouTube videos posted by presidential candidates,” according to the Economist.

Check out his YouTube page. Here’s to hoping that James starts asking the presidential candidates he interviews if they think our election system is broken, what they plan to do about it, and if they know why we vote on Tuesday.
