(CNN) – Barack Obama launched the official government Web site for the presidential transition on Thursday, giving it a look and feel that suggests the new president will utilize the Internet to a much greater degree than his predecessor.

It is a very well done site. The only drawback is that for all the talk in the campaign and his campaign site of working with the gay community the search function brings no results under the words gay, homosexual or LGBT. I’m hoping it’s a temporary oversight.
The site looks to me to still be under a lot of construction. However, I think it’d be a great idea for you to go to the page on Civil Rights and click the button to “Submit your ideas” and tell them to put gay rights on their agenda. I’ll do it, too. If enough of us tell the Obama administration that they need to prioritize this issue, perhaps they’ll do so more readily.
Ok, I just submitted the following:
*There is a check list and a request to mark what issue is most important to you, or fill in a box with something that’s not listed there. I filled in the box with, ‘Gay Rights’.
I wish I could figure out the PM thing. I didn’t know I could turn it off/on—must look into that!
I’m still at about 50%, but I was in the mood to cook today, which must mean I’m thinking about getting better! My election celebration is still on hold until I’m feeling well enough to raise a stein to our president-elect! Many thanks to you for checking on me!
p.s. Just enabled PMs! Amazing what I can find by looking around!
