What should Obama do next?

As part of the launch of Independent Minds, and in the build up to Barack Obama’s inauguration on 20th January 2009, Debategraph has teamed up with The Independent to give Independent readers (and any one who would like to join us) a chance to map and reflect on what Obama should do next. Click here to see the map.

Over the next 10 weeks, we'll be building a series of interactive debate maps exploring the key public policy and political questions facing Obama as he prepares for office.

The maps will draw on, and begin to synthesize, the analysis of Obama's options by The Independent's reporting team, as well as Obama's published policy agenda and public statements.

Help us map the whole picture by weaving your ideas and comments into the maps too; which you can do directly by logging-in to the maps, or indirectly by leaving a comment here on the blog.

It's a chance to participate in a deep form of public dialogue about the challenges ahead for an unprecedented President at a vulnerable and complex moment in human history.

I'll be posting regular updates about the maps on the blog, explaining the visual mapping method, and revealing further public initiatives as the inauguration approaches.

For now though, here's the current version of the map.
