The president spent about 40 minutes answering about a dozen of the more than 11,000 questions submitted by YouTube users during and after last Wednesday’s State of the Union. Users voted for the top questions, submitted either on video or in writing.
“I hope we get a chance to do this on a more regular basis because it gives me great access to all the people out there with wonderful ideas,” Mr. Obama said as the interview ended.
Check back with the Rundown later this evening for a debriefer with YouTube news and political director Steve Grove, who moderated the conversation with the president.
