Ian's Letter: "Dear Mr. President"
Dear Mr President: Note to the White House
Back in January, to coincide with President Obama's first 100 days in office, we asked WomansDay.com users to tell us 100 changes they would like to see the new Commander-in-Chief implement during his presidency. As you can imagine, we received many different responses on a wide range of topics. We rounded up the list below, which summarizes all the comments and feedback we've received so far—but we want more! Tell us what other changes you would like to see, and we'll keep adding to the list until it finally reaches 100. Then, we'll send it to the White House so your voices can be heard!
