Advice for a new President

CNN has been providing a lot of advice for President Obama, and with all of the problems around the globe there are a lot of issues to discuss but also a lot of hope for the future. Some of the clips that have run since the Inauguration...

Wednesday we had Phil Black in London, David McKenzie in Nairobi, and Jim Bittermann in Paris:

Cal Perry with a look at a fascinating class being taught in Beirut, where students come in for two weeks and speak with the people making policy in the region -- US diplomats, leaders from Hamas and Hezbollah, even Iran:

And what of Iraq? Arwa Damon reports on what officials are saying in Baghdad:

We also had Reza Sayah in Islamabad with a look at the complex situation there:

Reza's report led into a discussion between Tony Harris (in Atlanta) and Christiane Amanpour (in New York):

Campbell Brown talks to Fareed Zakaria and Christiane Amanpour about what the most important priority is for the new administration:

Thursday morning, Morgan Neill reported on the news that Fidel Castro had watched the inauguration:

Where in the World...?

SATURDAY: As the Inauguration neared, CNN had its own perch up on the roof of the Newseum, and at various times we had Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, John King, Soledad O'Brien, Roland Martin, David Gergen, Donna Brazile, and Don Lemon reporting from there; Candy Crowley was on the train bringing P-E Obama to DC; Suzanne Malveaux was at Union Station as he arrived; and Larry King was still doing his show in the Capitol; meanwhile, Nic Robertson was in Jerusalem; Ben Wedeman was in Rafah, Gaza.

SUNDAY: Karl Penhaul was in Rafah, Gaza; John King hosted his first Sunday program from the roof of the Newseum.

MONDAY: In honor of MLK Day, American Morning began an hour early as they broadcast from the Mall; Don and Soledad hosted throughout the day; TJ Holmes was at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis; Lou Dobbs Tonight was not on.

TUESDAY: American Morning again started an hour early, this time from the reviewing stand to the side of the main platform; Campbell Brown's program expanded to two hours, replacing LDT.

WEDNESDAY: Kiran Chetry was back in New York; John Roberts was on the SitRoom set in DC; Susan Candiotti was at GITMO; Arwa Damon is back in Baghdad; Don was a panelist in The Situation Room through the end of the week; Phil Black is in London, Jim Bittermann in Paris, and David McKenzie in Nairobi (above, toasting the inauguration with the specially-brewed "President" beer.)

THURSDAY: Peter Bergen is still in NOLA.

FRIDAY: Larry is back in Los Angeles; Nic was in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia; Anderson guest-hosted on Regis and Kelly.

That's it for me today... have a great weekend! And Happy Australia Day (Monday) to all the Aussies out there!
