Road to the White House: A Two-Way Street?
According to a recent CNN article, the U.S. president and the public might soon enjoy unprecedented interactivity, thanks in part to the Internet.
Change.gov, an official Barack Obama-inspired Web site launched the day after his election to the White House, features a political newsroom, blog and more. Prior to signing any nonemergency legislation, the president-elect has agreed to wait a period of five days, during which Americans can log on to Change.gov and comment.
Will this lead to an even more robust democracy, or is it all for show? What do you think of this initiative?
