What are your hopes for the Obama administration? The New York Times asked more than 200 people in 14 states (half red, half blue) to identify their greatest hopes for what Barack Obama might accomplish during his time as president. Their answers do not represent any kind of scientific sample—they come from people who shared their thoughts outside
supermarkets, at parks, in restaurants. We grouped their responses into the 29 “hopes” below. Click on each speech bubble to hear their voices, and then choose the hopes you agree with by clicking on “I Hope So Too.” Use the tabs to see which hopes are the most popular. If your hope is not represented below, include it in the comments section.
