It's Miller Time!
Blogger, YouTube-er and Representative extraordinaire George Miller (D-Calif.) has long been a strong progressive voice on issues such as employee rights, higher education and pensions and has been a consistent critic of the Iraq war.
He recently started a series of webisodes on YouTube, known collectively as "MillerTV," in which he answers questions from his constituents that you can help pick.
In a political system rife with intrigue and secrecy in which most politicians prefer to keep their interests close to the vest, it's encouraging to see lawmakers like Miller who are willing to be more transparent on their positions and take oft challenging questions from their constituents and the web community as a whole.
