Obama Online

You know those weekly presidential radio addresses that you've never really listened to because the last time you owned a radio was in the eighties? Well, they're coming to YouTube. President-elect Obama will record this week's Democratic address on both radio and video, and the video will go live on YouTube on Saturday. This, along with the 1,800 videos he uploaded during the campaign, indicate that Barack Obama will be America's first wired president. He also plans to hold online forums and video interviews in order to put a transparent face on the United States government. According to one spokeswoman, "This is just one of many ways that he will communicate directly with the American people and make the White House and the political process more transparent.”
