I’m really looking forward to hearing the SOTU address this evening. It has always been a favorite of mine for many reasons, however, like most Americans, tonight I will be listening to the rhetoric. It has really digressed over the last two decades reaching a level of embarrassment and certainly hindering our nation’s progress.
I know some Congressional members are sitting with their friends on the other side of the aisle to make a statement. This is a nice gesture and we’ll see how it goes. Next year, I would recommend you establish a seating chart by state delegation in your chamber. Might be a fun little experiment to have all the members from Alabama sitting next to the members from Alaska sitting next to those from Arkansas and so on and so forth. Just a thought from your friend, the Senator’s wife in Oklahoma.
Hope you are tanned, rested and ready! It looks like you’re in for a bumpy ride.
