Hot Seat will be featured on AOL News, and on AOL's Elections section and Political Machine blog as well as on third-party sites. The political widget will show results on both a national and state-by-state level and let users discuss their views. It will also give candidates a chance to respond to questions and comment on the results. The move reflects a growing effort to by AOL and other Web portals to provide election-year content leading up to 2008.
