TELL US: What Should Obama's Second Term Priorities Be?

What should the president focus on?

President Barack Obama was sworn in over the long weekend, beginning his second term as president of the United States.

With the official unemployment rate still above 7 percent, a huge budget deficit and mounting national debt, hostilities lingering in the Middle East, a reinvigorated gun control debate, immigration concerns and environmental issues still to be tackled, Obama will have a lot on his plate in the next four years.

What do you think his top priorities should be? Discuss in the comments below.
