    I prefer the new one!

    The graphics are poorly done and awfully grainy. *cringe* I was hoping it was all shiny, but nope.

    I like how the Presidential Administration agenda is front and center. I'm looking forward to the new being more interactive.

    Are you kidding? The shiny style you also call "web 2.0" for some reason is almost dead. Finally!

    Looks nice, but it says nothing about the man and what kind of president he will be. Everyone is falling all over themselves to praise Obama for nothing.

    This has nothing to do with his substance. This has nothing to do with how he will govern the nation. It has everything to do with flash and style and marketing. I just hope all this polish is not the bait on the hook to drag us into ruin.

    On the surface, it doesn't seem like much more than a facelift—new graphics; moved the site map to the bottom, etc.

    The old robots file is a nightmarish morass of redundant disallow lines! It would have made much more sense to use a handful of allow lines.

    to the detractors:
    this has something, not all, to do with how he will govern. the previous administration had this same opportunity and chose not to proceed. the previous admin. was infamous for poor communication with the nation they were elected to represent. this small difference in communication choice will make a difference towards the actual representation of citizens in general. it may even effect the lobby filtered communication of the house and senate as well.

    That's something about what they call Change.
