I think your site is fantastic and am fascinated by the way video is being used in politics this election season, and think some discussion or linking to these videos *may* be appropriate on this list. But your post makes it fairly obvious who you think we should vote for and talks about watching the video and going out to vote. I'd say it crosses the "fine" line. I think links to political videos should can be accompanied by "look at this interesting use of video, I haven't seen this done before". But not "you should see this video, after seeing what it says about candidate X, you should go out and vote and get all your friends to vote, too." We've got a really good thing going here, so we want to be really careful about involving politics. (I've nervously submitted a few such links in the past.) -- Sean -- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
