Got A Question for the Obama Team?
The Obama-Biden transition team today unveiled a new feature at the Change.gov Website that will allow visitors to ask their most burning questions of the transition. From the email announcement:
The Obama Transition team launched its new “Open for Questions” tool today on Change.gov. This new tool will allow anyone to ask and vote on questions they have for the transition team. Popular questions selected by the community of web users on Change.gov will be answered on a regular basis by the Obama team.
“Open for Questions” is yet another step to open up the transition process to the millions of Americans who are following closely - encouraging them to take part in the process and make their voices heard during this important time.
In addition to allowing Americans to “make their voices heard,” the tool also serves a valuable function for the transition team. In order to ask a question, or to vote for questions asked by others, visitors must register with the Website — and registration requires an email address. The tool will allow the transition team to add to the massive database of 13 million addresses the Obama campaign compiled during the presidential race.
No word yet as to how the organization intends to use the list, but the transition may have given a sneak preview last month when it sent out an email blast soliciting donations for wildfire victims in California.
As for the questions, how many do you suppose will be about the Blagojevich scandal?
