Republican candidates shy away from YouTube debates

This Wired blog is quoting a Washington Post report saying that most Republican 2008 presidential candidates are staying clear of the CNN/YouTube sponsored debates that have everyday Americans posing their questions via video. It appears as though the Republicans are afraid to face the nation over fear of being pressed about the war in Iraq. Only Senator John McCain who has been open in his stance on Iraq and Congressman Ron Paul, who opposes the war, have agreed to participate in the debate. To no ones surprise, the debates have been popular with the 18 to 34 demographic.
