Countdown to President Obama's Inauguration

The countdown to Barack Obama's Inauguration as the 44th president has begun. The inauguration will take place on Monday, January 20, 2009 and will potentially be the highest attended inauguration in history.

Electing Obama has been a historical milestone, not simply because of Obama's African heritage. Obama's election campagin has set new standards on outreaching to the public and engaging members of US society of all ages. Whereas politics in general before were the stomping grounds of the middle-aged and elderly where good ole-boy strategies were implemented, targeting a few-- Obama's campaign updated the political game to where technology played an ample role and people of all ages were engaged.

As we draw closer to Obama taking office and beginning his role as President of the United States, the hope is that Obama keeps along the path of engaging all people in the political process and authentially listening to the needs and wants of his constituency.
