Ask Barack Obama anything you want -- he might not answer, but at least you have a shot this afternoon, when the president holds a town hall meeting from the Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. You can submit questions and watch the live stream on the White House Facebook fan page at 4:45 ET today.

The Root will be live-tweeting on Twitter under the hashtag #fbtownhall. Join us there or on Facebook.
