My boss Katrina vanden Heuvel recently detailed the merits of a new campaign that could enhance civic engagement, make politicians more accountable and promote the notion that our elected reps should be able to talk lucidly about the issues of the day.

The idea of "Demand Question Time" came in the wake of the unprecedented live, televised question-and-answer session on January 29 between President Obama and the House Republican leadership. Since then, people of all political persuasions have been endorsing the value of what’s being called "Question Time" — from the editor of The Nation to the leader of the Cincinnati Tea Party!

Use the form below to add your name to the call for the President and Congress to implement a regular schedule of public Question Time sessions.
