    I know it is going to come up, so here's what we're doing: Discuss it right here to your heart's content - the actual speech and your thoughts on it. If it stays civil, it stays open for 24 hours. If it doesn't, it gets locked right away and we don't try again.

    I like this. Is it a test or a trap? Or both?!

    I like it too. Let's have a side pool. Who gets the last post before the lock? I've got Baron.

    That's an interesting bet, because it's not necessarily the person who causes the lock, but the person who gets in before the Mods hit the button. I've got da man.

    Time of speech, from first word to last, along with an over/under.

    Number of times he gets a standing ovation

    Number of times Democrats give him a standing ovation, while Republicans sit on their hands

    Number of times someone tries to interrupt him

    I can't believe how much this job ages the person who holds it.

    Why does Obama look orange? I didn't realize the absence of Boehner would make that orange glow gravitate to someone else.
