President Obama’s most successful utterance since taking office was “Gabby opened her eyes.” I figure that to use these words so soon again would be over the top even for him. Therefore, I am not going to go with them. Call me a poor loser, but I want to try “back from the brink” one more time. So for the second year in a row, I am going with “back from the brink.”

This year’s State of the Union might prove to be the most entertaining ever because so much attention has been spent speculating about the seating arrangements for members of Congress. To what extent will they, in the name of bipartisanship, mix? Will mixing change their behavior, and will it be for the better?

In last year’s State of the Union, President Obama boasted to Congress and America, “Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don’t. And if I have to enforce this discipline by veto, I will.”
