The Contest of Ideas Has Begun


The On Day One contest begins today! As regular readers will know, On Day One is our sister site, and for the past year has asked users what they think the next president should do, on day one. Our volunteer team of foreign policy experts sorted through the thousands of ideas submitted to the site and picked the top nine ideas in each of On Day One’s nine categories—U.S. Image in the World, Peacekeeping, Climate Change, Terrorism, Global Poverty, Iraq, Global Women’s Issues, Democracy and Human Rights, and Nuclear Proliferation. There are 81 semifinalists in all. It is now up to you, dear reader, to vote for the winners. The top ideas will be submitted to President-Elect Obama. The top vote getter will win a flight and precious hotel accommodations for the inauguration in Washington, D.C.
