Republicans cooling YouTube debate in St. Pete



Republican frontrunner Rudy Giuliani may have better things to do than answer YouTube users' questions in St. Petersburg. Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney is also frowning on the plan.

"I think the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman," Romney told the Manchester Union Leader this week.

The news comes just a week after the debate’s location was announced, and just days after Democrats fielded questions in YouTube videos, including one from a cartoon snowman that worried about global warming. Story here.
