zepickens’ Political Notebook

Question for OpenCongress: do you see any ways to marry the aspirations of this site with the perceived openness of the Obama Administration's efforts like change.gov? I just got an email from Our Presidency ( http://www.ourpresidency.com )saying they need Congressional District administrators to organize forums to directly communicate with Change.gov.
Has OpenCongress thought about the advantages and disadvantages of finding a way to link up with Change.gov? Obama, more than any other president, has expressed a willingness to use the Internet to empower citizens. OpenCongress is also trying to do exactly that.
My initial thoughts: OurPresidency is structurally flawed by trying to limit the scope of the page to 'human development' issues. 'OurPresident' is going to have to tackle a lot and we need a forum for ALL.
