Politics Returns to Ustream Tonight with several Republican candidates streaming live during and after the CNN/Youtube Debate. One noted is Governor Mitt Romney who is picking up steam in the Republican polls.

Also tonight, Congressman Dennis Kucinich will stream his Town Hall On The Constitution starting at 8pm EST.

We continue to believe strongly the impact of live video on the political landscape. Bringing more information to voters, more interaction with candidates and more live events allows you to make a more informed decision.

Also, Senator Barack Obama streamed his Open Discussion On Foreign Policy yesterday. If you missed it, check it out here:

Politics Go Local On Ustream

sbsun1.jpgOver the past year, Ustream has been witness to numerous high profile political figures from Hillary Clinton to the Former President of Ireland. We recently witnessed Mike Gravel’s Anti-Debate on Ustream after he was not allowed to participate in the national event on MSNBC.

As impressive as the national events are, I’m most intrigued by the use of Ustream in local politics. This past week, the SB Sun Newspaper did live commentary around the election results for two precincts in San Bernardino, California. People from the local area were encouraged to watch and take part as the election results rolled in through midnight. Although I knew little about the candidates and the specific political climate in SB, I witnessed local democracy in action and actually enjoyed it.

As the barriers to stream come down (and they will people!!!), I know we’ll see more small towns around the country doing similar streams.
