I saw the aerial photo taken by the U.S. Park Service which showed the difference in the number of attendees of the 2009 Obama inauguration and the 2017 Trump inauguration. President Trump was enthusiastically supported, as was President Obama. Why the stark difference? [more inside]
I'm going to be in Amsterdam for a few days next week, including during the first US presidential debate. I know I could just stream it, but I think it would be more cathartic to watch it with (A) other people cheering for Hillary and embarrassed/exasperated with Trump and (B) booze. Democrats Abroad doesn't have any debate watching events listed for the Netherlands. Will any bars be open that late/early (3 am?) on a weekday and showing the debate? [more inside]
Protocol demands the proper way to directly address the US President is as "Mr President." Has anyone (not related) to the current or former US President ever publicly addressed them by his first or last name directly to his face? What happened? If this hasn't happened, what would be the consequences of doing so?
I'm looking for news stories, blog posts, photos, video clips, mash-ups or anything else that captures the impact and emotion of Barack Obama's victory, especially on a personal level. [more inside]
How does one get tickets for the Presidential Inauguration? [more inside]
How does projecting the winner of the US presidential election work? And what is the earliest time at which the election may be called? [more inside]
Does the US President have a "Personal Computer" in the same sense that I, and most of you do? What would/does he use it for? What kind of insane security must it have? The answer is probably "He is much too busy to own a computer," but any information whatsoever would help sate my curiosity.
Is there a good place online to find lots of photos of past US Presidents? [more inside]
