State of the Union

I was clapping along with the rest of the people for much of the speech. I surprisingly liked many of the things Bush had to say. However, my cheers for his comments on alternative energy sources quickly turned into boos when he started in on offshore drilling.

You would not believe my happiness when he mentioned what he calls, "global climate changes" --yay for admitting we have a problem!

There were a couple other things I wasn't entirely impressed with. I would like the first line of a topic, saying what he wanted, but then his ideas on how to get there weren't fabulous. Overall, I think he realizes that he better shape up with the Democratic congress and start putting some goodness back into his presidency.

I like Nancy Pelosi. I wasn't sure if I would but I do. I like how Hillary looked bored. I still <3 Kerry. I got excited when they pictured senators that I knew/recognized.
I went to bed around 9:45. I was really tired. I have no idea what else was said but I didn't care. I'll probably read over the transcript in more detail today anyway.

P.S. Madam Speaker!
