Today's State of the SOTU

Here's a couple SOTU-related items from around the Web this morning that we thought you speech junkies might find interesting:
  • If you are curious to see how the State of the Union is viewed from abroad, check out this educational primer on the speech that the BBC posted for its international audience.  It's a nice introduction to both the pomp and the circumstance, featuring a fair amount of historical background and highlights.  Come to think of it, more than a few Americans might learn something from it.
  • The push for bipartisan seating at this year's speech picked up a big endorsement, with ABC News reporting that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is getting behind Senator Udall's desegregation plan.
