In a sense, President Obama’s State of the Union speech was sweeping – it covered the globe, it covered all the fields of concern, like the economy and education, it covered all Americans closely, and then all countries. But it was so grounded in details, in not just covering the terrain but mapping it, that perhaps a better word can be found.
Not soaring rhetoric, but calls to action on many fronts. And he is confident that we can move forward, create the America of the future. That came through clearly as he was signing autographs at the end, and responding casually to casual comments from legislators.
A great start to the new year.
