At 12:01pm EST, as Barack Obama took the oath of office to become President of the United States of America, the White House website, whitehouse.gov, switched over to its new format. The list of menu items on that website includes “Our Government.” It is OUR government, the People of the United States joining together to manage our affairs.
“One significant addition to WhiteHouse.gov reflects a campaign promise
from the President: we will publish all non-emergency legislation to
the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment
before the President signs it.”
It is OUR government, and a new era has begun.
