So, Who Does Your Weekly YouTube Address?

Karen, who wrote me last week about the surprisingly banal staging of Barack Obama’s first Weekly YouTube Address had this to say about the latest effort:

So, judging by Obama’s’ taped address today, it appears that somebody else wasn’t pleased with the background last time. It’s an improvement, but it still seems to me that there ought to be a more 21st century look for this 21st century method of communication. (Not the Jetsons or anything, but something less stodgy.)

Any suggestions?
