Two interesting things:

- Barack Obama's Flickr page, with photos from election night.

- Change.gov, the office of the president's transition page. The most interesting thing about this, I think, is a portion where you can send in your suggestions. Open-source democracy?

Even though these are small gestures, I think they're extremely relevant and important to a lot of people, especially coming on the tail-end of an era where the presidency was shrouded in mystery.

I just sent a message to him on that website that told him that abortion is killing a human, and that no hospital should be forced to provide this procedure. Guess how many thousands of other extremely motivated pro-lifers are going to do the same. Guess how much that is going to deter him.

You're right, no mystery there.

I can't tell how much or regarding which part of this is sarcastic.

If you're a single-issue voter, and you disagree with the candidate on the issue, I guess there's not a lot of interest in the president-elect or this part of his election. But that doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile or useful.

Single-issue voters could look at this as a chance to actually have some influence on an issue that the president-elect disagrees with. (That's basically the point of the link.) Compare this opportunity to our current president who in theory agrees with you but has done little about it.
