Question: From a leadership perspective--moving the country and the political process away from division and gridlock and toward consensus, confidence and action--how would you grade President Obama's State of the Union speech?
I give the speech an A- for the following reasons:
1. It represented a great message of unity as one America.
2. The speech called for strength and ownership of the challenges ahead.
3. The speech promoted an understanding of the stark reality we're facing and demanded of us a willingness to sacrifice to make strides forward.
4. It gave the American people a perspective on the broad and complex range of issues we are facing as a nation. It highlighted the need for both sides of the aisle to lay down their swords and work collaboratively to create a thriving America.
If we can move from rhetoric to action, we'll be making a great first step.
