    Some of the questions already submitted to Obama dealt with outsourcing, government bailouts and the stimulus package.

    Obama's staff used a similar method before he took office to compile a list of issues that Americans cared about the most. Topping that list was a request to legalise marijuana.

    The administration of George Bush, the former US president and Obama's predecessor, also took questions on the White House's website.
