I have to admit, before this past election, I didn’t even know The White House had a website. Okay, maybe I did, but I definitely never went to it. With the inauguration of President B. H. Obama, whose entire campaign platform was the promise of change, there’s no doubt expectations are high. The people want to see change, and they want to see it relatively soon. Well, word on the street was that at noon, inauguration day, the most important change (for the purpose of this blog anyway) happened, when THE American website was updated to reflect the Obama Administration.
Well, it’s no surprise the site looks good. What I did find surprising, however, was that, as you can see from the before and after shot, the Bush Administration’s White House site didn’t look all that bad. The new site does feel just a little sexier though. Maybe it’s the close up of Obama, giving us that Obamatude. Seriously though, the site is quite nice. I particularly enjoy the blog (not sure if that’s a new feature), and the fun facts page which features a photo of the former first kitten! I also dig that the “home” button in the navigation is the American flag. Nothing like a little visual pun when you’re feeling patriotic.
Oh, check out this shot of The White House site circa 2001. *shudders*
