On Change.gov, Obama's New Admin Info site
He only shows these as having been contacted.
Why are these not listed on your site?
• Colombian President Uribe
• Nigerian President Yar’Adua
• Senegalese President Wade
• South African President Motlanthe
• United Nations Secretary
The disconnect from his public speech to his actions disclosed here is startling. Interesting read. I personally know no Obama supporters who have read the plans on this site.
