What Do You Think President Obama Needs to Know?

President ObamaWhat do you think President Barack Obama needs to know about America's moms?

What do you think most needs to be fixed in our nation? Which problems would you like to see the presidential candidates address? And which issues do you believe are better left off the table this election cycle?

Now's your chance to let the President know your thoughts as he campaigns for reelection, and to share with the Obama campaign the issues that you think matter most. Tomorrow at 11 am Central time, I'll be chatting with key Obama campaign officials David Axelrod, Stephanie Cutter, and Kate Chapek, as well as a few very well-known public figures. Find out who else will be part of this intimate round table discussion on women's issues -- and leave your questions and and thoughts for President Obama in the comments -- after the jump!


Also in attendance: fair pay activist Lilly Ledbetter (who we interviewed recently for our Moms Matter YouTube Channel) and actresses Elizabeth Banks and Nia Long.

Interesting factoid about Elizabeth Banks: She has a son named Felix, born in March of last year, and went back to work when he was two months old to play Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games.

Interesting factoid about Nia Long: She has two sons, one born in 2000 and one born in 2011. Back in the 90s, she played Will Smith's girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire. Jada Pinkett Smith was originally supposed to have played the role, but was deemed too short to play the part!

Campaign officials are hoping for an open, interactive discussion on topics ranging from health care reform to economic security to affordable education-- They want to hear what matters most to readers of The Stir and members of CafeMom, so don't miss this opportunity to let your voice be heard in the comments of this post. I'll be checking it periodically between now and my meeting tomorrow, and will try to bring as many of your concerns to the table as possible.
