Tonight’s State of the Union is going to be an interesting one. Bush’s popularity is at its lowest point, and the Congress he will be addressing is decidedly not a friendly one. His plan for escalation in Iraq has been overwhelmingly rejected by the public, and the rumors that Bush is planning a military confrontation with Iran are only dragging him down even lower.

Personally, I’m really excited about Jim Webb doing the Democratic response. I didn’t follow the Webb race too closely (for six months the CT Senate race basically dominated all of my news consumption) but I’ve heard a lot of good things and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action.
