One Week Ago Today...Change
I think this is my favorite cover from all the newspapers and magazines covering the election of Barack Obama as our 44th president. Obama is not wasting any time getting his staff and cabinet together. There's already talk of Obama issuing immediate executive orders lifting restrictions on stem cell research and closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay where more than 200 "terrorists" are being held without formal charges. With the economy continuing to spiral, Obama has already said it's his first priority. I think we're going to see some big changes happen quickly after inauguration day on Jan. 20. Obama and his team are also using the web effectively, setting up a new transition website at www.change.gov.
