I didn't watch the State of the Union Address. It's bad for my blood pressure. But I'm watching the Democratic response right now, and Kathleen Sebelius is impressing me with her words, if not her delivery (which is a little stiff). First off, she's framing it as the American response, not the Democratic one, which is a nice idea. We should try that sometime.
The tone is basically one of rebuke, reminding the President of all the things we, the people, know to be true that he seems unaware of. The line that most sticks out to me is "We know that caring for our children so they have a healthy and better start in life is what grownups do."
