The ONE Campaign Wants You To Help Send The Next President To Africa

On the heels of President Bush's recent trip to Africa, The ONE Campaign is asking its members to sign a petition asking all the presidential candidates (those still in the race) to pledge to visit Africa during their first term.

The ONE petition states:

As a voter in the 2008 Presidential election, I'm asking you to pledge to visit Africa during your first term in office. It is my hope that your trip will increase U.S.-African cooperation, save lives and help build a better, more secure future for millions of the world's poorest people.
Smart. Good. Sense.

And, with 100,317 signers so far, The ONE campaign should find Teams McCain/Obama/Clinton to be quite receptive to their pledge.
