Democratic hopefuls prepare for debate

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Not much campaigning today for the Democratic presidential candidates, who are preparing for a debate tonight at The Citadel in Charleston. It's the first presidential debate with questions posed by the public using Internet videos. The two-hour debate begins at 7 p.m. and is sponsored by YouTube, Google and CNN. Editors at CNN will select questions from personal videos delivered to YouTube. Citadel President John Rosa says the school is making history with the questions submitted on YouTube. A Republican debate is scheduled for September 17th. Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan has submitted a question, suggesting New York Senator Hillary Clinton and Illinois Senator Barack Obama have shifted their positions on withdrawing from Iraq.
