Overview is the official web site of the Obama-Biden Transition Team.


The "/Open for Questions" tool is an amazing step forward (although if anyone but Bush had been president for the last 8 years, we probably would have had something like this long before now), but it is also frustratingly limited. For example, you can only vote on whether you approve of a particular question -- not make it plain how you feel about that question. So although there was tremendous approval for questions related to marijuana legalization, one can't assume that all this approval translates into approval for marijuana legalization. (This also works in the other direction; if you think a question needs to be asked but you dislike the way someone asks it, there is no way to make it clear that you agree with the gist but dislike the phrasing.)
