DNC searches for the next 'Macaca' moment

Sen. Allen, whose campaign gaffe may have cost him the election, concedes defeat to Jim Webb.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Democratic Party is hoping for another "macaca moment" in the 2008 election cycle.

Former Sen. George Allen's now infamous gaffe was caught on video by a campaign aide to his opponent and quickly posted on YouTube for all to see.

In addition to digging into the backgrounds of Republican candidates, the Democratic National Committee hopes to set up video crews to follow them around in early primary states.

Can the Democrats harness the power of online video to help win back the White House? (Watch video: CNN's Jacki Schechner reports on the DNC's hopes to follow GOP candidates with video crews)
