Would there be a potential scuffle if Biden picked a less-than flattering video of his competitor? The campaign says they choose the specific YouTube videos by judging the best presentation of the candidates' position -- either an official video, a video from a supporter or media appearance in which the candidate addresses his or her policy on Iraq directly.

Here’s hoping they follow Biden's gambit. Warning: playing both videos at the same time on Head-to-Head ‘08 may cause your head to explode, especially when Joe starts yelling. UPDATE: Here's Biden telling Keith Olbermann about Head-to-Head '08.
