What issues should President Obama tackle in his second term?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Dominic Fracassa.

"I would like to see President Obama appoint some money to the FCC that will help expedite the laying of fiber optics all over the country...(The Internet) is a utility, and it should be treated as one."

Denise Gillen, Mountain View

"I think the most important thing is the economic situation, making sure that people have enough jobs. I'm interested to see what kind of incentives he has to take care of the economy and get people back on employment roles."

James Fong, Mountain View

"What I want to see the President do is not focus on the economy because it's something that's difficult for him to have control over, but go out and do things are are more unique. He has a real vision of how we can come together and become a great country."

Kurosh Hashemi, San Francisco

"I'm from Europe, and I see Europe as a super-social place, and it's hasn't always worked out very well, so I hope that Obama will lead America in the American style."

David de Rosier, United Kingdom

"I would like to see him come to a resolution on immigration."

Marisol Rodriguez, Palo Alto
