President-elect Obama has brought the fireside chat into the 21st century. Below is Obama's first video in his weekly series. This is a groundbreaking, interesting and smart move, but it's also simple. Presidents have used the weekly radio address as a way to communicate directly to the masses for decades, but how many people happened to catch the snippets played on their local radio stations on Saturday mornings? This is the first regularly scheduled, direct discussion intended for and easily accessible by the masses since FDR's famous fireside chats of the 1930's.
