President Obama's Address

I had a strange experience tonight. I just finished watching an address to a joint session of Congress by a president who was intelligent and articulate and actually seemed to have some ideas. Instead of just being "on-message," he actually had a message and wasn't just reciting what his keepers gave him to say. Even Republicans at times found it impossible to just sit on their hands. Hope is a hard thing to resist.

Hope is even harder to resist when the person encouraging us to grab it with all we've got can actually pronounce it.

Yes, the impact is completely nucular.

It was refreshing to have a president articulate enough to get his message of hope over to the citizens of the U.S.
