I tuned in for the final - I'd say 2/3 - of Obama's speech. And I have to say, it is true - the man gives great, rousing speeches. Even if you're not in a particularly rousy frame of mind. For the first time in quite awhile, I came away from a State of the Union (which it was in everything but name only) feeling hopeful. Which is pretty damn remarkable, since things are worse domestically than they've been in a couple of decades.
Anyway, good talk, Mr. President. Walk the walk, now. I know you can.
