Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

National initiative?

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Our behind the scenes look at the CNN/YouTube debate is featured right now on YouTube News & Politics editor Steve Grove’s Citizentube blog, and as an editor’s pick. In the video I talk with Mike Gravel about what he calls his plan for a “national initiative” which he thinks will get people more involved in voting. Wonkette had some fun with that idea yesterday.

In this crazy system, legislation would be put to a national popular vote, allowing the rubes and nuts of America to make their own laws willy-nilly.

Wonkette links to this Mother Jones article about the initiative idea.
