State of the Union

Woodrow Wilson broke the tradition.

He delivered his State of the Union messages to Congress in person.

Before that, only Presidents George Washington and John Adams had delivered the report in person. From 1801 to 1912, it was delivered as a written report, without a speech.

If I were in the same amount of trouble that George W. Bush is in, I would return to the written report method this year.

I would make it short. Maybe just bullet points:

  • Iraq - not so good.
  • Rummy - gone.
  • Health care - whoa!
  • Deficit - well, ...
  • Economy - not too bad.

Then, I would get outta town and lay low for a few days.
