YouTube said today that it will offer a live stream of President Barack Obama’s press conference discussing his first 100 days in office.

"As citizens and pundits from all political perspectives analyze the President’s first 100 days in office today, Obama himself will address the nation tonight on the 100-day anniversary of his inauguration — and we’re going to carry a live stream of the conference from the White House YouTube channel. Be sure to tune in at 8pm EDT to watch it live," wrote Steve Grove, YouTube’s director of new and politics on the company blog.

The YouTube homepage is also featuring political commentary and analysis from major news organizations.

YouTube is encouraging users to upload a video about the Obama’s administration’s first 100 days.

"You can join in the conversation by making a video: How is the Obama Administration doing, and what advice would you give the President moving forward?" writes Grove.

"Upload your thoughts to YouTube and add them as a video response to this Citizentube video, and we’ll feature some of them on our News page tomorrow."
