Well, this is a change. The United States has elected Barack Obama as its 44th president. Over the next few months, PE will try to bring its readers a preview of what is to come with the new administration. In the mean time, a number of websites already provide good detail of what the president-elect plans to do in the next four years.
On some issues, e.g. climate change, President-elect Obama has spoken at length and backed up his positions with legislative action. On others, including water infrastructure, the record is rather slim. Much of the speculation on Obama's views toward water policy come from a debate his representative took part in against a McCain rep at Weftec.08.
