As you may know, within 24 hours of winning the election last Tuesday, the Obama staff put up the new website, currently subtitles "office of the president-elect," but I am sure to be updated as Senator Obama and his savvy staff come online for real January 20th.
, there's never been anything like it. Especially in a transitional period by an incoming president-elect. The site gives links to Obama administration news, government jobs and a way to share your own thoughts and stories. Thus, this is already an important step, symbolically at least, in bringing the people back into government. We, the People, will have more of a voice than we've had in a long, long time.

Here's what I posted to the "tell us your story" link at today:

In 2008, I was the outreach coordinator for the Obama campaign in Kerr County Texas. I hosted and participated in Obama events in a half dozen counties, and a few of us die-hards helped WIN Kerr County for Obama in the Texas primary, one of only a few "rural" Texas counties that went for Obama. I am especially proud of that.

In 2003-2004, I volunteered for the Dean campaign in Texas, Iowa and New Hampshire, and as we now know, Dean's exciting model for a hip, modern, tech-savvy, internet-based appeal AND, more recently, Dean's 50 state strategy as chairman of the DNC really helped set the stage and the "ground game" for an Obama victory last Tuesday.

There are millions of us former "Deaniacs" who would LOVE to see Dr. Dean in the Obama cabinet, probably as the head of Human Health and Services. The doctor is IN again!

Thank you, Dr. Dean and the DNC. And thank you to Barack Obama. And thank you to the president-elect's entire campaign staff and administration for CHANGE to be!
