Lycos, Inc. (http://www.lycos.com), a leading provider of social publishing, media and search services, today announced it has teamed with the Walden University Presidential Youth Debate to air a last look before Election Day on where the candidates stand on important issues facing young adults. Beginning today and running through Nov. 4, voters can view exclusive videos of Senators Obama and McCain answering questions young Americans chose as most important to them, including, for the first time in history, two questions submitted by 13-17 year-old "Future Voters" of America.

The Walden University Presidential Youth Debate (http://cinema.lycos.com) features nearly 40 minutes of feedback from the candidates giving young Americans the answers they need to vote for the future they want. Five of the 14 questions were submitted from young Americans in states still considered to be battleground states. The debate also gives all voters their last pre-Election look at where the candidates stand on critical issues.

"Lycos Cinema is the perfect platform for The Walden University Presidential Youth Debate," said Anthony Tedesco, founder of The Presidential Youth Debates and Portable Heroes, the producers of the debate event. "The ease and aesthetics of Lycos Cinema are beyond other online venues, and we're amazed at how well Lycos Cinema builds community around programming in real time -- exactly what we need to transform our exclusive candidate debate video into voter buzz and inspiration people can take right to the polls."
