Obameter

The St. Petersburg Times is up to something pretty cool with Obameter. As they explain, “PolitiFact has compiled about 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the campaign and is tracking their progress on our Obameter. We rate their status as No Action, In the Works or Stalled. Once we find action is completed, we rate them Promise Kept, Compromise or Promise Broken.” It’s got an RSS feed and everything so you can keep score at home.

I think this is great. He ran on change and now he’s being held accountable (so far he’s doing pretty well). Let’s hope he can live up to his promises.
