Sen. Christopher J. Dodd is jumping on the Web 2.0 bandwagon, perhaps hoping some fresh modes of outreach will help him re-connect with Connecticut voters.

On Friday morning, Dodd, in his role as a senior member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and chairman of its Subcommittee on Children and Families, launched a YouTube video “soliciting feedback from constituents on how best to reform” the health care system, as it prepares to write a health care overhaul bill.

“Today is an opportunity for me to tell you why this is important, and to invite your attention and ideas to this discussion and debate,” Dodd says in the video, directing viewers to the “YouTube Senate Hub” to record their views.
