Since anyone can submit a video to YouTube to pose a question for the Republican presidential debate this week, Democrat Chris Dodd is taking advantage to ask about protecting the Constitution.
"Hi I'm Chris Dodd," he says, seated by a fireplace, a campaign sign in the window over his shoulder. "I'm from East Haddam, Connecticut.
"And my family and I are spending a little time in Iowa these days," he says in a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact that the senator has moved his family to the Hawkeye State, where he hopes his presidential bid strikes lightning before the Jan. 3 caucuses.
"I have a question about the Constitution. Many Americans are concerned that the Administration seems to be making a false choice. That is to be safer we have to give up rights. I don't believe that, I wonder if you do. And if you believe we ought not to give up our rights, what would you do in order to protect our Constitution?"
Hundreds upon hundreds of questions have already been submitted, so it's rather uncertain whether Dodd's query will get air time when the debate is broadcast Wednesday night on CNN.
