The State of the Union is Strong(ish)

President George W. Bush delivered his final State of the Union Address last night [text of speech]. One of the best assessments of the address came from columnist E.J. Dionne, of the Washington Post and a regular on NPR's All Things Considered. He said something along the lines of, "Whatever the opposite of the word 'ambitious' is, this speech was that."

I would tend to agree with that assessment. All in all, it was a pretty modest speech from a president who has little political capital to spend.

But because I was predisposed, I was unable to watch the address live. So, being the nerd that I am, I TiVo'ed it instead. And let me tell you, the TiVo is absolutely made for the State of the Union Address.
