State of the Union Blog-A-Thon (The Sequel)

Now that the political class is finally beginning to turn its attention to the State of the Union address, scheduled for January 25, we thought it was time to kick off our second annual SOTU Blog-A-Thon.

As we did last year, we will be running a special series here on the BloGG over the next week previewing the president's big speech — or as we like to call it, the speechwriters' Super Bowl.

We have invited speechwriting pros of all political persuasions to weigh in with their thoughts on what President Obama should or shouldn't say in his second SOTU, offer some historical perspective, or just join in the general kibbitzing.  We'll be posting their responses throughout this week and up until speech time next Tuesday.

We will also be posting links to other pre-speech commentaries and reports that we think are worth sharing.

We hope you will join the conversation.  As they say about voting in Chicago, please feel free to comment early and often on any of the posts that pique your interest or interest your pique.

Gentlemen (and women), start your pundicating.

P.S.  We will also be again hosting a live running commentary during the SOTU on Twitter and Facebook.  Check back next Monday, the day before the speech, for information on how you can be part of that discussion.  Or feel free to visit our Facebook page any time for the details.
