The Chill of Winter

Last night, I watched the State of the Union address. Like some other bloggers, I was sad to see John Kerry, who would have given us some concrete steps how to make us all feel safer and get the deficit under control, in the audience and not at the podium. And many of us wanted to see John Edwards behind Kerry, smiling, and applauding.

I noticed that the atmosphere in the room was far more chilly last night than even four years ago. On the left, there were more gasps and noises of dissention, and the right side of the room applauded to try to keep the speech lively, even when Bush wasn't prepared for them to clap.

I guess this winter will be most chilly--and one of discontent.
