AFP - Friday, November 7
WASHINGTON (AFP) - - The official website of US President-elect Barack Obama for his transition to the White House, www.change.gov, went online on Thursday inviting users to offer their ideas for the future of the country.
Under the headline of "Open Government," the website asks readers to "Share Your Vision" via email.
"The story of the campaign and this historic moment has been your story," the website states. "Share your story and your ideas, and be part of bringing positive lasting change to this country."
The website's homepage notes that it's "75 days until inauguration," when Obama is to be sworn in as president on January 20, 2009.
It also features a quote from Obama: "Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today."
A blog posting includes a link to a YouTube video of Obama's victory speech in Chicago on Tuesday.
Users can also apply for jobs via the website or read about the president-elect's agenda and priorities for his administration.
