What should Obama have on his to-do list? What should be highest priority?

::::::::

Tomorrow, Obama will have the power to make change happen. He surely has a big to-do list. What do you think should be on it?

We'll take some of the suggestions and put them in a poll. Meanwhile, here's a place to say your thoughts on what should be top priority.

SCHIP?

Stem Cell Research?

End of Ask don't tell.

Admit he's a citizen of Nigeria?

Intervene between Israel and Palestine

Have special prosecutor appointed for Bush/Cheney

Appoint special team to reverse the massive mess Bush created.

End Iraq war

Rescue Economy

Re-open 9/11 investigations

cancel expanded presidential and vice-presidential powers Bush grabbed.

Close Guantanamo

As I write this, MLK's speech is playing. He says, "Now is the time to make real the promises of Democracy. "

Will Obama take steps in that direction? I hope so.

Will take the steps I want? Maybe not. He's appointed a great labor secretary and FCC board member. Let's hope he does a lot more we can be proud of.

Now, what do YOU think should be a the top of Barack Hussein Obama's to-do list?
