Barack Obama told cheering supporters on Tuesday “change has come to America” and called on Americans to back a spirit of unity to attack the country’s pressing challenges.
Barack Obama was elected to the new president in the United States.
The news with which the citizens in Obama City in Japan are pleased is reported in Japan.
I am anxious about the relation of the future of Japan and the United States.
Tech CEOs use YouTube to encourage voting(October 29, 2008 CNET)
Technology CEOs and other business leaders are taking to YouTube to encourage their employees to tear themselves away from their desks for an hour on November 4 to go vote.
The election activity that uses YouTube cannot be done in Japan now.
However, it will be used by Japan in the future.

Prime Minister Fukuda declared the resignation today.
Various problems have happened in Japan now.
- Extension of new Anti-Terrorism Special Measure Bill
- Economic measure
- Influence on life of the people according to soaring oil prices etc
- Ditch of the Liberal-Democratic Party and Komei Party which is partner of coalition
It is thought that Prime Minister Fukuda thinks that the keeping the present administration in power in the future is difficult and determined the resignation for such a situation.
I did not imagine that the Prime Minister of one country alternated twice in several years.
I worry about Japan of the future.
The GOP Launches Site (And Facebook App) To Solicit Policy Proposals. Why Aren’t the Democrats Doing This? (July 11, 2008 TechCrunch)
Today, the Republican Platform Committee launched a site to gather comments and policy suggestions directly from the party faithful (and anyone else willing to give up their e-mail address). They also launched a corresponding Facebook app. The idea ostensibly is to gather feedback and debate about policy issues such as national security, energy and gas prices, health care reform, judicial nominations, and that old crowd pleaser “Protecting American Values.” Where’s the technology plank? Here are a few resources for them to start thinking about what tech policies we need.
I think that there may be the online forum to make the best use of people’s opinions for the policy in Japan.
There was a site where the opinion was requested in the Liberal-Democratic Party of the political party in Japan.
However, the site was a site without the content as mail was made.
Moreover, the political party in Japan is appealing for the policy of the party by using YouTube recently.
However, it seems not to be able to appeal still.
A better policy might arise by offering the place in which it discusses it with various policy issues.
I think advancing toward a good direction to be able to do the site where vigor overflows.
In a thing so,the politics of Japan might change.
