Was it just me, or did Nancy Pelosi look like a child on Christmas morning during the speech? I thought the speech was superlative, and the early "chattering class" seems to agree. I got charged up several times, especially parts about the reclamation of our dignity, honor, and our future; The "We will emerge stronger than before" line was the climactic moment of the speech. I enjoyed the redirectioning of America, through the (not so) veiled jabs at the last administration.
Maybe I was hypnotized by Obama's oratory brilliance, but Jindal's tonality seemed odd and distracted me away from his message. After Jindal's slam on the stimulus package and the near unanimous congressional opposition to it, I don't want to hear from Jindal or Republicans about "putting away our political differences" right now.
What did you think about the speech tonight? And Jindal's response?
