On Sept. 12, Slate co-sponsored the first-ever online-only presidential mashup with Yahoo! and the Huffington Post. Armed with your questions, Charlie Rose asked the top Democratic presidential candidates about their views on health care, Iraq, education, and other issues. Their video responses, posted on Yahoo! and linked to below, are coded and at your disposal—allowing you to create your own custom candidate forum.
Also below, you'll find John Dickerson's commentary on the event, as well as transcripts of how the candidates responded to the questions. We've also provided you with links to statements the candidates have previously made on these issues.
