This week's conversatoin will be facilitated by Michael Fratangelo and Nicole Myers-Turner, Student Mentors for the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
How is America different (better or worse) for having had this campaign, in particular Barack Obama's very strong candidacy? In particular how has the country grown or failed to grow with respect to issues of race, gender and class?

What kinds of expectations should we have for the president, especially given the current economic and military situations? How should the new president prioritize programs and goals?
