If you could ask you country's leader any question what would you ask?

As I've read Obama is coming to our state and they are taking questions from the public as to what to ask him. I honestly would not know what to ask! There are so many important issues at hand it's hard to choose just one KWIM? Education for Adults & our kids? Credit Card and financial reforms? pork? (I don't mean the meat but government waste, wasteful projects) Tax credit for working families? Tax credit for SAHM's? Jobs? No Child Left Behind? Imported goods vs our jobs being exported? Like I said so many good national topics.... even local ones... like tons of potholes who's going to fix them? water problems? empty stores/factories/wharehouses... what to do about them? pink slips to teachers? What would be the one thing you'd ask?

Thanks for your scope to ask a question to your president. I have never had such chance. In India it is very tough to meet the Prime Minister. I hope once in my life I shall have a scope to ask a question to the Prime Minister.

I will probably never have the chance in this life time. I have contacted local state represenatives, Govenor, School Board, and the State Department of public instruction but I have never personally met anyone and held a conversation.

hi 3SnuggleBunnies I think it would be a tossup between making tons more jobs so people can get back to work, thus helping the economy as people out of work will not be buying merchandise and here in Southern Caliornia a lot of stores have closed up.they need working people to buy from them and when most are unemployed the stores just go under. Also the rent issue here needs to be addresses asap as newly employed people unless presidents of flourishing companies cannot afford the horrible rents here. they need to make a cap on rents here as wages have not kept up with the rents they ask.When we first came here an apt for two people rented at 700 to 800 now 1200 is considered low, this is patently ridiculous to me.the rents have doubled but wages stayed pretty much the same. so for me it would be make nore jobs, and stop apartment owners from overcharging renters.
