U.S. Congressman George Miller (CA-7) has really embraced the Web 2.0 world. He started the 110th Congress by holding a press conference in the virtual world of Second Life and has moved on to creating his own Facebook application called Miller TV.

Miller TV allows Facebook users to add a video feed from the congressman to their profile. In his first video the congressman asks viewers to send him questions about the Iraq war using video, blogs or email. He requested that participants tag their videos and blog entries with the phrase "askgeorge" so his office can find and track the questions.

Ed Trelinski points out the benefit of Miller TV on his blog. "Instead of disappearing after one blog post Miller TV will be permanently etched on the profiles of many Facebook users for months, possibly even years to come."

"Good Facebook apps become part of a users everyday routine, which is what makes Miller TV potentially so fantastic."

With the 2008 presidential candidates fully engaged with MySpace and YouTube it will be interesting to see how many other politicians take their cues from Congressman Miller.
