He went to school to study international relations, but James Kotecki is an expert in something totally different: YouTube. From his Georgetown University dorm room, Kotecki started a politically-focused videoblog he called, “the vlog of vlogs.”

Equipped only with a cheap webcam and raw talent for political satire, Kotecki started producing videos to find his voice online as a commentator. He also tapped the candidates’ YouTube channels, to request interviews with them. It worked. Ron Paul and Mike Gravel showed up for interviews in James’ dorm room!

Now 23, James writes, produces and hosts KoteckiTV for Politico.com. He releases new video blogs every day. Hey, it’s not the financial job he was planning but he’s definitely found his niche this political season.

Update: Watch the CNN.com Live interview
