Did anyone else watch the State of the Union address last night?
I started on C-SPAN, thinking I wanted it without the commentary. I quickly discovered, though, that I missed the comfort of the commentary and switched to NBC.
I’m not sure if it was just there, or everywhere, but the cameras captured the day’s news perfectly – Obama and Kennedy huddled together smiling and nodding, often with no one else in the frame, and Clinton, a woman in red in a sea of others dressed in black, obviously surrounded by people, but clearly alone. She reminded me a bit of me at the prom, holding my head high and trying not to watch as the guy who I had really wanted to ask me was all over the freshman volleyball player he brought as his date.
