Maybe there was a Bush edition and I just missed it, but the Obama White House has a blog — and it is going to use it. One of the first entries, time-stamped at 12:01 p.m., just seconds after Pres. Obama officially took office, proclaims that “Change has come to WhiteHouse.gov.” The post gives a short list of specifics, including plans to post most legislation at the website for five days to solicit public comment before signing the bill. The post is written by the incoming Director of New Media for the White House. Sounds like a fun job: White House Blogger-in-Chief. Or maybe Online Community Organizer.
Scanning other blog entries will inform you that today has been officially declared National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation, 2009. And yes, there’s an RSS feed, too, so you can put it in your sidebar if you want.
