What Obama plans to do from Day 1:
1. Call in the Joint Chiefs to figure out how to get safely out of Iraq.
2. Stabilize the financial markets.
3. Develop a sensible energy plan.
4. Get moving on a health care plan.
Obama takes the race issue on in the second video. He acknowledges that some people won’t vote for him because he’s black, and he also points out that some people will vote for him specifically because of the fact. I thought he was quite disarming when he discussed it.
