President Obama Wants to ‘Hangout’ With You on Thursday

Once again highlighting the sign of the times, the President of the United States will “hangout” with the American people following this week’s State of the Union Address.

Following his address to a joint session of Congress tomorrow night, a 200-year old tradition, President Obama will perpetuate a new tradition of sorts. On Thursday, Google has confirmed, President Obama will turn to Google+ and take questions online in a “Hangout” session.

The Hangout is scheduled for this Thursday at 4:50 p.m. EST.

“Much like the Fireside Hangouts held by Vice President Biden and Domestic Policy Director Cecilia Munoz over the past few weeks, the President’s Fireside Hangout will include a group of people who regularly discuss important issues of the day online,” explains Ramya Raghavan of Google+ Politics.

During the conversation, the selected participants will ask the President their own questions—but we’d also like to hear from you before the Hangout. To let the President know what’s on your mind, head to the White House YouTube channel and submit a video or text question.

Individuals are encouraged to submit or vote on questions until 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
