Political content on YouTube has truly reached a fever pitch. And at no other time is this more significant than in the hours leading up to, during, and after the presidential debates. That's why we're working with CSPAN to put all of the debates on our homepage, so that voters can see the entire debate on YouTube.
And the YouTube community is responding well - last week, the first presidential debate got over 880,000 views and a 4.5-star rating.
While we usually are very careful about posting political videos on our homepage - we take very special care to insure we are non-partisan - presidential debates are unique opportunity to help voters of all politcal persuasions discover and engage with political content from both candidates, and decide for themselves which canididate they prefer.
We just posted the Palin/Biden debate on the homepage... let's see if it gains more views than the first McCain/Obama debate did...
