Here, We’re Always On The Clock
Thursday, December 25th, 2008
As you’ve probably noticed, President-elect Barack Obama is spending his final Christmas vacation here, in the state where he was born, before moving himself and his family into the White House. I’m also on Oahu for my family vaction, but I’d never miss an opportunity to get the President-elect thinking about our voting system.
Yesterday I walked on the beach near his Hawaii vacation home sporting my WHYTUESDAY.ORG t-shirt in hopes he might catch a glimpse and log on. After all, the state of our voting system is arguably more important now than ever before since nearly 40% of Americans sat idle, away from the voting booth, this election.
You may remember that I interviewed President-elect Obama last year during the primary election cycle in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. For that interview, click here. And to buy a Why Tuesday? t-shirt of your own, drop us a note.
