A YouTube video of US President-elect Barack Obama's weekly radio address is seen on a computer screen in Chicago on November 22, 2008.

Over a quarter million users, in the past week, have posted or voted on questions they want answered by President Obama on the first-ever virtual interview to be streamed live today on the White House’s YouTube channel. At 2:30 p.m. PT in the Roosevelt Room, the president will connect with people face-to-face over a live Google+ Hangout, an internet video connection. Several participants will directly ask Obama top-rated questions live.

WEIGH IN:

How important is it for the President of the United States to directly converse with Americans? How is internet technology impacting political representation in the U.S.?

Guest:

Macon Philips, White House director of digital strategy
