MySpace and the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) have launched MyDebates.org, a new Web site focused on the upcoming Presidential debates.

MySpace - My Debates

Visitors to MyDebates.org will be able to participate in an "Issues Quiz" that will determine their views on 14 issues, including the economy, national security, the environment, same-sex marriage, education and healthcare. After taking the quiz users can compare their stance on the issues with the candidates and view a state-by-state breakdown of how other Americans feel on the issues.

Users will have the option of downloading a personalized application that can be embedded on a blog, a social networking site like MySpace, or another Web site. The application will have a summary of the user’s stance on the issues, on-demand playback feature and issue-based tracking, allowing users to follow a candidate’s stance on the issues during the debate series.

MyDebates.org will also feature high-quality video streaming and as the candidates are speaking, an "issue icons" will light up as candidates mention specific topics. Videos of the debates will be housed on the site in their entirety. Videos will be bookmarked to allow users to go directly to the issues.

"The CPD believes that the Internet can be used to personalize the debates in a way that allows for in-depth examination by individual citizens and joint discussion with others," said Janet Brown, Executive Director of the Commission on Presidential Debates.

"Our partnership with MySpace is an important step forward into integrating new media into the debate series."

The first presidential debate will take place on Friday, September 26 and will be followed by a vice presidential debate on Thursday, October 2. The second presidential debate will take place on Tuesday, October 7 and the final debate will be on Wednesday, October 15.

    With Russia and Venezuela, N. Korea, and Iran growing their Viperous intentions to co-incide with terrorist actions around the world, why is Nato waiting to strike full force, to wipe out these nests of Killers?  Why wait for them to become a fully realized threat with the Bomb?  Sooner is better stratigically than Later, No?

    We Seniors should get retroactivly,the true cost of living increases,for the past 10yrs….and the true cost of living increases from now on.please stop insulting us with around 3%. The Goverment has been Gauging and being totally disrespectiful to the Seniors, and its time at this moment to change.I’ve called my Congressmen 4-times,in the past 4-months,and they don’t even have the basic respect to get back to me.I also think The Congressmen should give back their self appointed big raises they gave themselves years ago[retroactivly]and put that money toward paying back the elderly.If not,we want to vote out the congress, and the people in the house,and get new fresh blood in their,people that might do some good.The present bunch of characters have been a total failure for us.

    Sincerelly,

              Please have the candidates respond to this concern.   In light of the recent debacle we saw when the government gets involved , re: Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, it is clear that itis a disaster for the little man.  I personally do not want the government involved in controlling Health care.  I, personally would prefer the government allowing us to deduct our health care insurance costs when we file our taxes.  In spite of my personal prferences, I would like to know SPECIFICALLY where , and how, Sn. Obama plans to get the financing for his program.  SOMEHOW,SOMEWHERE, we, the taxpayers, are going to end up paying for this!  Thank you.

      if you got half a brain and  stoped the war we could provide haelth care free

      for every american

      give that some thought

      if you like the war  please tell me what are we really going to win ???

      and at waht cost

  • Ann Addison

     Please ask Obama if he feels that his job as a community organizer was successful.  Also ask him what part Bill Ayers played in his job as a community organizer.  Also what job Bill Ayers research on education in high schools played in his community organizing.

  • Guest

     What work did you do with ACORN as a community organizer.

    ?

    • Leroy

      Who cares what he did at acorn

      It did not cost the tax payers a dime

      how about sara paylin who stood up and told all america that she sold the

      state aircraft on e-bay,what she did not say was she sold it at a loss and that tax payers had to pay for that

  • Guest-Michael Mitchell

    The last 8 years has been terrible. Obama’s theme is "Change". What I woluld like to ask Obama, and McCain.

    If you was the President the last 8 years and had to handle some of the following;

    1) 9-11

    2) Katrina

    3) Disastrous relief for Tsunami

    4) Major flooding in US.

    5) Many more.

    How would you as a President handle the economic impact of these hard times, and wouldn’t your presidential plan be affected?  

    Thanks,

    Michael

      I would strongly agree with Obama on all issues.  God bless him and the people he represents.

    BIG GOVERNMENT FOR EVERYONE! we will take care you.We are $111T in debt and big government has never worked-but SPEND SPEND SPEND . God Bless the U.S.

      Obama cares about all people in the United States of America.  I am an elected official of my county.  I realize that he is committed to do what is necessary to ensure our country is as as best as it can be for its people.  I have worked all of my life to survive, and I am proud of it.  No longer am I as well off financially as I was 10 years ago.  I am also older now than I was then, but I do care about our future generation.  I strongly feel that McCain does not care about the citizens and workers of the USA’s future.  The rich get richer, and the poor get richer.  What about the humanitarian way?  We need to change right now.  Forget about McCain’s ideas, and let’s think about the people young and old in America right now and do what is right.

  • destardi

    in Chicago….

    Why are they still failing?

  • Pat

    Well, McCain really lost this debate.  Obama made one mistake tonight he should have thanked McCain for standing up for him at different town hall meetings.

            Our spending it seems that in certain programs it is limited like education but when it come to military spending and war there seems to be no limits on the spending i would like to see who wants to curb spending overseas and military to a good level and to be more comitted to spending money to other programs that are here for all of us.We need military but it needs to be kept in check. as well.

    Thank You

    Did Sen. McCain ever answer this question? I heard him dis Biden, but I didn’t hear him talk about Palin’s fitness to be president.  Does this mean he’s unconvinced, so needed to avoid the issue?

    • Guest

      He absolutely skirted around the issue….he could not comment other than she is a woman raising a handicapped child and only she can understand the raising of a child with a disability.  Excuse me, I have a most severely disabled grandchild – I understand the frustration of providing for a disabled child but I don’t understand how to run the USA and neither does she and sadly McCain knows that.  So yes, he did not answer the question.

  • kala dickinson

    I feel like Senator McCAIN KEEPS DANCING AROUND THE ISSUES. iN THE BEGINNINING i WAS ALL FOR HIM AND MS. PALIN. NOW I HAVE changed MY MIND. HE IS LIKE A SNAKE IN THE GRASS AND IS ONLY USING HER TO GET VOTES. I THINK THAT IT IS SAD, THAT WE AS AMERICANS CAN NOT EVEN TRUST THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND US. GET OFF OF THE HE SAID SHE SAID AND GET TO THE ISSUES AT HAND. iT DOSEN’T MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE IT SHOULD BE ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE WILLING TO DO FOR OUR COUNTRY. NOT THE MONEY THAT WILL LINE YOUR POCKETS BUT ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT HERE TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVSES AND THIER FAMILYS. PARENTS INCLUDED. I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD GRANDSON THAT I AM TAKING CARE OF BECAUSE MY SON IS IN PRISION. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LET GO 2 YEARS AGO BUT WAS NOT. WHEN WE FIRST GOT HIM HE WAS LIVING WITH HIS MOM AND A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER. CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES WAS ENVOLVED AND THEY WANTED TO GIVE HIM BACK. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE IN THAT. IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY. YOU CAN AFFORD IT MR MCCAIN, I CAN NOT. COME AND LIVE IN THE REAL PEOPLES SHOES FOR AWHILE. YOU BOTH HAVE ISSUES BUT I HAVE CHANGED MY MIND. SARAH PALIN MAY BE YOUR PATSY BUT IS DOES NOT FOOL ME. YOU ARE EVIL!!!!!!!! yOU TALK ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BUT YET YOU ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO CUT THE OTHER OPPONANT DOWN. BOTH OF YOU NEED TO LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD AND NOT THE POLITICAL ONE FOR A CHANGE. TRY LIVING THE AMERICAN PEOPLES LIVE AND NOT THE POLITICIANS. YOU PROBABLY WILL NEVER READ THIS, BUT ONE DAY YOU WILL MEET YOUR MAKER AND THAT WOULD BE GOD HIMSELF.

  • Henry DEEKEN

    Both of the candidates have no idea of what it takes to be the president. George and Bill will be the first to admit this.

    The idea we can spend and not raise taxes is stupid.

    The idea that bills can be passed by our congress that have a bunch of "me too" add ons has got to stop. If congress or an individual member wants a "pork" item, let him/her have the balls or…. to put that item in  a bill and quit sneaking around to add some crap spending just so the "district" knows they are working for them. 

    This spending cost billions.

    If B.O. wants to clear the stench in DC let him grab Nancy by the what evers and the VP by the balls and start right in their own backyard.

    Lets have a Federal law that eliminates gerrimandoring,  sets term limits, and treats human beings better than some animals are treated. You can’t kill an animal, but you can suck a baby to death.

    It dosent matter who won or lost the debate, what really matters is who will be a better president. A man with no experience or a man who has 30 years? remember its the senate that has as much power as the president. It scares the hell out of me if Obama wins, we will have a democratic government, that is absolute.             absolute power corrupts absolutely". So no crying or bitching if this happens just live with it for 4 years.Good nite no more polls for me.

  • Truth teller

    i cannot begin to understand the possibility that have effected and sharply constructed such stupidy that have became a widespread from every edge of american soil. we have became so divided, and hyprocrites who are now a resembling the ideas we have rejected and fought against through out our history. ONE issue that i need to raise is the stupidy of few individuals that illustrated the american to be ignorant to the rest of the world.. " I think he is an arab"  ( NOW THE WORLD LOOKS AT THAT) Firstable america is america and the "AMERICAN DREAN" does ot exclude ARABS in taking a part of the apportunities that is available to all americans. ISLAM and TERRORIST can not be associated with each other the same way CHRISTIANITY is not associated with the bombing of OKLAHOMA.

  • Joe

    Everyone will wake up Nov. 5th and discover that a new era of

    goverment was elected. President McCain is going to prosecute

    the thieves and lower taxes.  He will also have a new congress

    with Republican majority to get down to business of straigntening

     

    out the mess the do nothing Democrats left behind. They to should

    all be investigated for fraud, corruption, grand larceny and abuse of

    power and all sent to prison for a long long time. Change is coming

    God Bless America and the people who believe in our Lord.
