HuffingtonPost.com, the world's largest political/cultural blog is reaching down to the grassroots level to cover the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Off-the-Bus has asked for citizen journalists to sign up and contribute to the blog.

The first assignment is to cover Senator Obama's "Listening to America" series of meetings. Each volunteer journalist is given specific instructions on how to proceed, what to ask and how to conduct themselves as citizen journalists. A document is to be downloaded and completed and used as the basis for the coverage.
