“Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy.” But it must also be effective. Politics and the genuine good of the American people as a collective can no longer bow to special interests or a loud, obnoxious minority. Obama made that clear today in his State of the Union. He was poignant, sassy, passionate and appropriately angry. Our government must work for us, must do right by us. I call upon, I beg, politicians in Washington to do their jobs and serve the interests, the will of the people.
I go to sleep a proud, emotional, hopeful American.
