Don't forget the Ivory Coast.

With so much attention being paid to dramatic military action in Libya, the President took some time to address the people of the Cote d'Ivoire, reminding them that we still support efforts to induce the guy who lost the election to abide by the election results.

For those who express confusion about what the President stands for, I would suggest that perhaps the message is so simple that many are missing it. It's all in this video. We are for democracy, and against violence. We are for freedom, and against tyranny. We are for inclusiveness, and against divisiveness. We are for hope, and against fear. We are for membership in the community of nations, and we want to bring other nations out of isolation. Although simple, it is a powerful message, and it is being heard all across Africa.
