The votes have been counted: Barack Obama has won the state of North Carolina. This is quite significant - the first time the state has voted for a Democratic president in over thirty years. And as talk begins of who Obama's cabinet appointees will be, those interested can visit the President-elect's website, change.gov.
Among the topics on the detailed Agenda page of the site are promises to make changes on everything from Foreign Policy to the Arts. It's quite a long list and it should be interesting to see its evolution. At the top of the page, a countdown: "74 days until inauguration." From what I've been hearing, he's not the only one counting down the days.
