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?
The president gets points for avoiding divisiveness and focusing on the future; but while saying "We do big things," he failed to propose any that we could rally around. He said it is our "Sputnik moment" but proposed no "put a man on the moon" corollary. If you were a technology entrepreneur, there was a lot to like. If you were one of the 48 million Americans living below the poverty line, you must feel not only voiceless but invisible.
