Although Barack Obama won, the bitter campaign divided the US. The president emerges with a tenuous mandate and an urgent domestic to-do list. Abroad, a new world order is rising from the euro crisis, the Arab Spring and emerging Asia, and US leadership will be key. In this series, GlobalPost's far-flung correspondents bring you insights into how President Obama's re-election will impact their regions.

The President of the United States affects not only Americans but also people living on every continent, in every country. So whether you are in St. Louis or Shanghai, Miami or Melbourne, you can participate by answering this one question: “What is your advice to the next US President?”
Create a short video starting with, "Dear Mr. President," and add in your request or advice. (See the explanatory video above.)
