Readers of the blog and LinkedIn users may have noticed our recent LinkedIn Answers’ campaigns centered around themes such as business (Jimmy Wales – Wikipedia), politics (Barack Obama – Democratic Presidential candidate), journalism/blogging (Kara Swisher – Wall Street Journal) and book launches (Jon Swartz – USA Today). The most recent question in that series posed by Bill Gates (Chairman at Microsoft) received over 3500 answers.

Today, we continue along that path with a question from John McCain, the Republican Presidential candidate 2008, who asks:

“Our country is faced with challenges as we enter into the 21st century.  I am prepared to effectively deal with these challenges and lead our country as President on Day 1. Please let me know what you view as the biggest challenge facing America and how you would like your President do address this challenge” – John McCain

Better still, is finding a community of professionals who share the campaign badge with you, sorted by degrees away from you.
