Google and Fox News team up for a GOP debate later this month.

It will be streamed live to YouTube. Interactive features might include online voting for which questions should be asked. This isn't an especially new development, these have been done before, but it will be interesting to see what kind of interactive elements get layered on and how well those work. It's also going to be interesting to see if more social sites get in on candidate debates, especially heading into the primary season. What's Facebook going to do? Stay tuned.
