  1. Even though the times we live in right now seem uncertain for many, the inauguration of President O'Bama will herald the people of the United States into a new, exciting time and this blog will welcome all to become active in this great time in our history.

  2. Wow, what an awesome project. As a 5th grade teacher, this was the kind of personal, real life experience I was looking for to give my students a lasting taste of this event. The enormity of this experience will not fully be realized for years, but projects like this one will help to ensure that it is full and lasting. Me and my 20 ten and eleven year olds will be talking to you soon. Keep up the great work!

    As you see the economy in the United States is very bad. What are your plans for this situation and how will you protect the economy as the next president?

  4. Dear Mr. Obama,
    I live in the United States, but I was born in Egypt. I moved to America 3 years ago and I am 15 years old. I have several questions for you.
    1) Are you excited to live in the white house?
    2) How did you feel the moment it was announced that you were the next President of the United States?
    3) What would you be doing right now, if they announced that McCain was the next president of the United States?

    This is the first time in my life that I have the chance to say something directly to the president. Last year I moved from India to America, so uniting the world is very important to me. How will you make the world more united?

    I moved from Iraq two years ago. We had to move because my little brother was injured from a bomb. So, I was very shocked, but very happy when I heard that you were pulling soldiers from Iraq. What is your first step to end the war in Iraq?

  12. I would ask President Obama to carefully consider the impact of decisions made now on the future of our country and the future of our children. In addition I would ask him to be prudent in making financial decisions and to consider how a strong education system now will strengthen our economy in the future. Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

  13. I would ask President Obama to run our country selflessly. I would ask him to take care of the poor and oppressed of our society and of the world before he takes care of those in power. I want to live in a nation that is based not on fear or materialism but on love; I think and I hope that President Obama will lead us with his example and encourage the rest of us to live in the same way.

  18. President Obama,
    There are two things that I think we should focus more on. One thing is to switch to alternative energy because our ozone layer is in bad shape. Another thing is to ban cell phone use in cars. People who are driving while using a cell phone don't pay attention and crash. I think you should focus more on these things.

  36. I would ask President-Elect Obama to remember to care for our environment and make drastic changes to the way we make and use energy, even in the midst of this economic crisis. Now is the critical time to act for our planet in order to avoid an average temperature change of 2 degrees, and if we wait until the economy levels out the whole world will suffer, particularly the underdeveloped nations.

    Congradulations on making history. I must say that I am a bit concerned with your lack of experience, but I'm trying to keep an open mind. I was wondering what you are going to do about the various issues in America. You keep promising change, but when you get specific, you seem to always contradict yourself, depending on who you are speaking to. My main concern is which one of your "views" are you actually going to stick to? Well good luck.

  88. Dear Mr. Obama,
    I would just like to congratulate you on the historic win and ask you a couple questions.#1:What are you going to do about our troubling economy? #2:When are you going to bring the troops home?

    P.S. Please bring the troops home soon.

    How do you think living in the white house will affect you and your family.

  92. I'm really just curious about how it feels to be such a huge part of History. I mean, for a country that has been stating that skin color doesn't matter anymore, we are really making a huge deal out of this. Not to offend anyone, I think its pretty cool, but it just goes to show we aren't as open minded as we say we are. So, if I could ask him anything, I guess it would only be "How does it feel to be such a big part of history, and how do you think it will effect the difference between people of different race."

    Now-former-President Bush recently said in an interview with Larry King that the President should focus more on the defense and security of the country than anything else. Would you take these words in vain and put all attention on the economy only to leave the cabinet to take care of the other roles of presidency? What proof would there be otherwise?

    If i had sixty seconds i would talk about the finance. Not about the fact that we are in one, because it is pretty obvious that we are in one, but i would ask if he himself (not politician Obama but normal citizen Obama) thinks that the government should be bailing out and helping big corporations at this time when they arent helping out every business in the US that needs help. Do you think that bailing out these corporations will help the economy, or will it just tell everyone that when there's financial trouble the government will pay you.

If you raise the price of ammunition, people will find ways to buy it cheaper and it will involve crime and people stealing it. I think it will cause more harm than good. Other than that i Think you will be a wonderful President.

  159. If I had one minute to ask Obama a question I would ask him if he could help us find a new source of energy to run on. Why I would ask him that is because every day the oil in the earth is decreasing and soon their will be no more. What will people do now to travel? Here are some new sources of energy that I would like to use. I would like to use solar power because it comes from the sun and is enviromently friendly. Another one would be electricty because if we use electricty it would never run out. When our cars need to be charged we could switch gas stations to electric stations. I hope you can make this change president Barrack Obama.

I wouldn't ask about economy and war because it would take more than sixty seconds to answer and fully explain.
