What do you think is the State of the Union?
This evening, the President of the US will deliver his annual State of the Union address, as required by the Constitution. No doubt there will be much discussion, as well as several other “SOTU” addresses by the opposing party and others. I look forward to these discussions, but I want to know what YOU think is the state of the United States. Are you optomistic, pessimistic, idealistic, realistic, or just “bleh”?
I am especially (but not exclusively) interested in opinions by those of you who are not from the US.
