About The New White House Website

Ken AshfordObama & AdministrationLeave a Comment

First of all, it's got a blog.

Secondly, to its credit, it reflects Obama's commitment to open and transparent government.  Case in point:

The President's executive orders and proclamations will be published for everyone to review, and that’s just the beginning of our efforts to provide a window for all Americans into the business of the government.

And even better:

One significant addition to WhiteHouse.gov reflects a campaign promise from the President: we will publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment before the President signs it.

One hopes that people will take this seriously, rather than just rant.
