4. My notes
Find the lighting technicians and have them light the White House in Red, White and Blue. Duration to be decided later.
Find the web designers and instruct them to put an American flag graphic on the home page of every government and military site immediately. (310 x 135 pixels would be fine, bigger if you can fit it in tastefully.)
Assume the worst will occur and have a mitigation plan for it. (1)
Do not set up or use a private email server.
Please remember that the White House is “the people’s house”, not my house, or our house, or your house.
Cheers and jeers are par for the territory, develop thick skin and a gracious smile; use them appropriately and generously. (1)
Call the folks at State and find out how we restore the clauses that were removed from the Citizenship Oath under Mr. Obama.
