As President Elect, Barrack Obama addresses the nation every week. It is clear that one big change in his administration is that he is going to address US and speak to US. "Us" meaning the American people.
The last guy we had in office seemed like he was giving his weekly address to the "Iraqi people" every time he spoke.
He spoke so much about the "Iraqi people" every time you saw him it made you wonder if he even knew the "American people" existed. It was like he forgot about us. Our situation now shows all too well that he did.
This first change is a welcome one - let's think and speak about what the American people need - for a change.
