Change.gov,the website created by the Obama transition team in 2008, has effectively disappeared sometime over the last month.While the front splash page for Change.gov has linked to the main White House website foryears, until recently, you could still continue on to see the materials and agenda laid out by the administration. This was a particularly helpful resource for those looking to compareObama's performance in office against his vision for reform,laid out in detail on Change.gov.According to the Internet Archive, the last time that content (beyond the splash page) was available was June 8th -- last month.  Why the change?Here's one possibility, from the administration's ethics agenda: 
 Protect Whistleblowers:
Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrityand willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes savelives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need toempower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who exposewaste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.
It may be that Obama's description of the importance of whistleblowers went from being anartifact of his campaign to a political liability. It wouldn't be the first timeadministration positions disappear from the internet when they become inconvenient descriptions of their assurances.
