MTV-MySpace presidential dialogues to feature John Edwards on Thursday

The first in the series of real-time Webcast chats with the major parties' presidential contenders will take place at the University of New Hampshire, but online observers will be able to participate as well.

The first of the Webcast presidential dialogues put together by MySpace and MTV will debut on Thursday, September 27, with an appearance by former Democratic Sen. John Edwards as he meets with students at the University of New Hampshire.

The dialogue takes place at noon Eastern time.

Those in attendance at the event in Durham, New Hampshire, will be able to ask questions in person, but online observers will be able to submit questions through the MySpaceIM instant-messaging client as well as through and e-mail. Viewer reactions will be tracked by a Flektor widget--Flektor, as you may remember, was acquired by MySpace parent company Fox Interactive Media earlier this year.

The event will also be translated into Spanish in real time and moderated by MTV personalities Gideon Yago and SuChin Pak, reporter Chris Cillizza, and pollsters John McLaughlin and Geoffrey Garin.

Future dialogues, which have yet to be announced, will individually involve Democrats Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Christopher Dodd and Bill Richardson; and Republicans Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, John McCain and Sam Brownback.
