Or perhaps you believe  


The story of the campaign and this historic moment has been your story. It is about the great things we can do when we come together around a common purpose. The story of bringing this country together as a healed and united nation will be led by President-Elect Obama, but written by you.  

For more of what the coming Obama-Biden administration has planned visit
www.change.gov.  2012, here it comes.

Does Barack Obama’s transition website, www.change.gov — which is basically a souped-up version of his campaign site — qualify? As Ed Morrissey pointed out yesterday, “The incoming administration technically has no status as a government organization or program until January 20, 2009. The “Office of the President-Elect” doesn’t exist within the government.”

The primary goal of the transition site seems to be to collect e-mail addresses and personal information — for future fund-raising and political organizing projects

Well at least Obama hasn't started selling advertising space on the walls of the White House.

Yet.
