Accountability

Today President Obama and the White House delivered his first weekly address. The White House has a channel on YouTube and a blog that you can subscribe to. The BBC also has an ‘Obama Diary’ that will track his first 100 days in office, and you can subscribe to the BBC’s RSS feed for news from the Obama presidency. I’m posting this week’s video here and I hope that you will join me in keeping updated on future videos. President Obama claims that he wants his administration to be held accountable by the public, something that makes my political philosopher’s heart glad. I know not all of my readers are as idealistic as I am or care as much about politics, but I plead with you to remember that accountability is a mutual arrangement. He can wish for accountability as much as he can but never get it if we don’t do our part. So please, take advantage of these avenues to stay informed.
