Video questions submitted via the Web site YouTube shook up the usual campaign debate for Democratic contenders. The debate was in partnership with CNN and Google. Questions included: lesbians asking about gay marriage; parents with sons in Iraq asking about the war; and a snowman asking about global warming. The questions, most of them coming from young people, were blunt and earnest, yet sometimes bizarre.
