Ideas for Change in America


There's a movement of citizens inspired by the presidential campaign who are now submitting ideas for how they think the Obama Administration should change America. It's called "Ideas for Change in America."

One idea is to fix the financial regulators by imposing a fiducary standard on all who offer financial advice. You can read more and vote for the idea by copying and pasting the following link in your browser.

The top 10 ideas are going to be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day and will be supported by a national lobbying campaign run by Change.org, MySpace, and more than a dozen leading nonprofits after the Inauguration. So each idea has a real chance at becoming policy.

I really like the idea behind this program. Even if it turns out to be some political gimmick, for the moment I think its helping Obama maintain the grassroots feel of his campaign and is helping his constituents as well as those who might not have previously aligned themselves with him to feel sort of connected to him in a substantive way.
