    So, I'll be the first to admit that I don't always keep up on what's going on. But I saw that Obama was going to do this online based town hall meeting. I guess the people of the US have been able to email questions which then he was going to answer some of the top rated. I have been watching it online and I have to say that it's been interesting and I find that the fact that he is reaching out to us is nice and refreshing. I hope this type of approach keeps coming. :D

    Anyone else watch it?

    Hey Billie, I heard this morning on the way into work that he got 77,000 questions submitted already. Holy cow!

    I think they had even more questions by the time it started. I just think it's a great way to reach out to people. :D

    I'm just really glad that finally, we've got a President that actually seems to care about the people he's been elected to govern.

    Seems a refreshing change to me and I respect the man immensely for that!

    Uh-oh...this is like being called on in class. I don't want to mess up the ideas...let me see if I can find a link or something. However he did talk a lot about education and the price of health care.

    I think this one has some video in the middle of the page that you can 'launch' to see some of the actual meeting.
