The Huffington Post is carrying the text and video of Presidential-hopeful Barack Obama’s response to President Bush’s state of the union address last evening. It’s well worth reading the text. One wonders if Obama picked up some of the Kennedy speechwriters in addition to Ted’s endorsement yesterday. The only thing holding Obama’s response from deserving an A+ was his blatant and unneccessary campaigning. We get it: you’re running for President and you have plans that will fix the mess Bush and the current members of Washington have put us in. Last night wasn’t the time to campaign. It cheapened what was a powerful and simple response.
