MySpace and MTV have teamed up to announce what they are calling "Presidential Candidate Dialogues." 

The first one will be with John Edwards

So how is this different from the YouTube/CNN debate, you ask?  

For one thing,  unlike the YouTube debate, this will offer a real-time back-and-forth dialogue between questioners and candidates.  I'm also told there will be all sorts of interesting technology at work to allow the viewers to participate during the dialogues.

... I know what you're thinking:  MTV is nothing more than a liberal front-group.  While this is no doubt true, MySpace is owned by Rupert Murdoch, so my hope is that his influence will at least balance out the MTV liberal agenda.

Candidates ranging from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- to Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani -- have accepted invitations...
