Obama State of the Union: Follow Analysis - Placing the Challenge on the Congress, People
From voting, to energy, gun control, to foreign policy, immigration and homeland security, Obama delivers a stunner of a state of the union address. Any time more than half of the room stands up or claps more than half of the time, you know you've made an address that has really made an impact. Will Congress run with his proposals? Maybe. Should they? Yes.
Judging by the standing time of John Boehner, many things will not change. By the sheer determination of President Obama, you know they are going to anyway! He has seriously thrown down the gauntlet tonight, and I'm happy to see making voting easier is one of the big issues he is covering - we have been too focused on making it harder to vote.
Stay tuned for the OFA conference call following the address...
