Hey, Hillary! Who’s going to be running the White House if you win the presidency? You? Or Bill?
That flip question is one of nearly 200 submitted by YouTube users to be posed to presidential candidates during upcoming Democratic and Republican debates co-sponsored by CNN and the popular online video site.
YouTubers are already fired up. Although the Democratic debate won’t go off until July 23 – and Sept. 17 for the Republicans – video clips of questions are already flooding in.
Of course there are YouTubers with weighty questions on important issues like Iraq, health care and the economy. And then there are the downright hilarious queries posed by men, women, kids, Kermit the Frog – and a duck.
A man in a stocking cap demands to know which White House hopefuls would push for congressional hearings into aliens.
And there’s a blue stuffed-animal duck who squawks on about whether leaving Iraq would be better or worse.
A guy named Steve, his bald pate just inches from the Web cam, wants to know which candidates have given blood in the past five years.
And a teenager in his parents’ Massachusetts kitchen asks the candidates: Which is more dangerous, alcohol or marijuana?
Then there is a close-up of a fluffy black tabby cat, Molly from Monroe, N.Y.
As she lies comfy on a blanket, this message scrolls beneath her cuddly face: “How can you protect my food in the future?”
A duck. waddle-waddle quack-quack.
