(Newser) – Disappointed with earlier web-based candidate debates, Wired is touting 10 Questions, a  project launched Wednesday that invites users to submit video questions for the hopefuls, vote up or down the questions submitted by others, and then—when candidates submit video answers—vote up or down the candidates' answers, too. 

Backers of 10 Questions—an internet-electioneering website called TechPresident, which  has partnered with political blogs from  Air America to the Right Wing News—hope the model will be incorporated in some way in debates between the two major-party candidates next year. Voters have until Nov. 14 to submit and vote on questions through YouTube, MySpace, Yahoo Video or Blip.tv.
