|A bare-bones page for our Ask the President project. I haven't had time to make it pretty yet, sorry. I selected the original tweets to try to get a variety of topics and hashtags -- Jon Pincus|
#p2 (Progressives 2.0) is working to get progressive questions from diverse perspectives more coverage in traditional and new media.
For tonight's White House press conference, we're focusing on the Ask the President initiative. If you're on Twitter and would like to help, it's easy: just tweet about it! To get you started, here are some sample tweets ... feel free to use them directly, or try variations.
UPDATED, 7:00 p.m, better formatting (thanks @jerimee)
