Reporter's Note: The new president, Barack Obama, has asked Americans for advice on how to run the country. In the spirit of this day of celebration and good citizenship, I am beginning a mission: to write a letter a day to the White House.

Dear Mr. President,
Congratulations! Watching you on that podium today, surrounded by so many hundreds of thousands of Americans I could not help but feel inspired by the miracle of Democracy and the greatness of our nation. I also have a question: Do you have any idea what you’ve gotten yourself into?
I know you are busy today, but call when you can.
