Obama Administration - Open for Questions

Open for Questions

On Thursday morning at 11:30 AM EST, President Obama will conduct an online town hall on the economy and answer some of the most popular questions live.

"Open for Questions" is an opportunity to open up the White House to all Americans.

It's an experiment designed to encourage transparency and accountability by giving you a direct line to the White House.

This first round will deal with the economy. Americans deserve to know what their government is doing to get our economy back on track. But it's up to you to participate and make this experiment a success.

plez sez: this is an interesting way for the President to keep in touch with everyday Americans. i applaud his ability to take his message to the people rather than hiding behind a press secretary in the white house.

as of this posting, close to 57,000 questions had been logged and over 2 million votes had been cast. and on thursday morning, the president will answer the questions that have the most votes.
