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 walked the razor's edge by balancing optimism and realism in a speech that was less notable for soaring rhetoric or inspiring vision than for carefully treading a middle road that would play better to the external constituency, the American public, than to his live audience of representatives and senators who will have to make the hard choices about cuts and spending priorities. Can we rally behind a committed centrist?
