Postcards to the president

Reuters has filmed a series of video messages from people in a dozen countries congratulating Barack Obama on his election victory and offering suggestions, requests and advice. You can submit your own video message on YouTube, tagging it postcardstopresident. This builds on Reuters excellent Voices without Votes project. Here are some views from Iraq (mainly in Arabic, except for the first one, translations in the reuters article).

Meanwhile, the Guardian newspaper has set up a Flick group to upload images as a message to President-elect Obama.
