MoveOn.org Seeks Obama in 30 Seconds
Group Held Similar Ad Contest for Spots Opposing Bush in 2004, Resulting in ‘Child's Pay’ Ad

MoveOn.org took a membershipwide vote before Super Tuesday, with two-thirds needed for an endorsement, and got 70% for Obama, according to spokesperson Adam Green.
The group held a similar ad contest for spots opposing George Bush in 2004. That resulted in the "Child's Pay" ad featuring children working in low-paying jobs to pay off the $1 trillion deficit.
MoveOn.org said the winning Obama spot will get a national TV ad buy and YouTube play. Plus, the winner gets $20,000 worth of video equipment.
Budding videographers and Obama supporters have until April 1 to submit their ad, which will be chosen by a "motley crew" of judges that includes Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, cyberspace superlawyer and academic Larry Lessig and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
My issue as a Canadian viewer is that here in Canada we respect the American commentators on delivering great questions and learning a lot about the future of our neighbors inregards to Nafta or Iraq since it is something that affects us here as well.
My point is that I was one of the t.v.viewers who was so disgusted with the Tabloids issues that the ABC commentators brought to the debate that I tuned to TVO and watch a nature documentary.If I wanted to hear or read about Tabloids ,stupid spouting I would tune into Jerry Springer&* show that has no class !!ABC you sucked Bigtime here in Canda!!!!!!!!!!!Put Alex Trebeck on the next Debate , he would not lower his standards of questions like your two commentators did!!!.
