I think he needs to go about reestablishing the rule of law when it comes to trying and prosecuting people who have been incarcerated both domestically and abroad for terrorism or suspected terrorism. We can’t just hold people forever—that goes against what a lot of people were worried about when this country was first founded.
Tim Rose ’09, Richmond, Va.
I’m very concerned about the war on terror and particularly foreign affairs... I get the sense that the economy will eventually recover, but I think the war on terror is something that will continue for a while. I’m also contemplating military service as a career, so not cutting back on military and defense spending is something that’s very important to me personally.

I think the most urgent issue is the economy. [President Obama] needs to establish greater public confidence that the economy is improving.
Akihiro Maeda ’10, Kobe, Japan
I think the most important issue is the economy, because the American economy has a huge influence all over the world. Many American companies and citizens have gone bankrupt and people here and abroad have lost many jobs. I think this is the most urgent issue for that reason—because it is related to how people make a living.
