In yet another example of Ustream.TV impacting the political processes of our country, Presidential Candidate Senator John Edwards streamed LIVE to his base of supporters on Ustream.TV yesterday. In his “Its Time To Party For Change”, the Edwards campaign sponsored hundreds of house parties across the country. Thousands of Americans gathered in living rooms to join John Edwards’ campaign to change America. This is democracy, LIVE.
Senator Edwards was joined by his wife Mrs. Elizabeth Edwards to discuss the issues, build local support, and talk live with their supporters. Each house party was able to talk live with the Senator and Mrs. Edwards. For most of these supporters, it was the first time they were able to directly interact with the Senator.
Another Presidential Candidate Senator Chris Dodd has streamed LIVE on Ustream.TV on several occasions in the past leveraging Ustream.TV’s LIVE platform and rallying his base. ustream.TV has also seen the Young Democrats of Atlanta stream their conventions and politcal activists stream their rallies.

Presidential Candidate Senator Chris Dodd will stream LIVE today at 5pm EST on Ustream.TV (Click Here). Senator Dodd has shown the power of LIVE video several times by streaming debates, town halls, and interactive sessions on Ustream.TV.
Senator Dodd has said, “One of the great things about the internet is because of sites like MySpace, YouTube and UStream, the financial barrier to communicating on a mass scale is essentially nothing. With a video camera (or web cam) your message can be broadcast to more people in a single day than watch some of the most popular cable news shows. Social networking sites like this one provide candidates and elected officials the opportunity to participate in mass two-way communication — not just talk at you.”
Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Chris Dodd made internet history today by streaming LIVE through Ustream.tv where he took questions from a variety of internet blogs around the web. It was all LIVE.
