6:31 PM PT: Now we're entering the portion of the speech where the president will outline the types of investments he wants to see Congress make to create jobs.
6:31 PM PT: As I said earlier, the president has definitely got his swagger back. Great to see.6:33 PM PT: Yes, Karl. It's just you, you nitwit.
6:34 PM PT: How it's playing in one Ohio TV station's Twitter feed:
6:35 PM PT: Woooo! Climate change is a topic in the SOTU.
6:36 PM PT: John McCain probably isn't happy to be reminded that he once believed in climate change.6:38 PM PT: Well, yeah, but that's a big if. Plus, they hate speeches that are firmly grounded in reality and a coherent world view, which is exactly what this speech is.
6:39 PM PT: Haha, even Boehner laughed at this: "I know that you want these job-creating projects in your districts. I’ve seen you all at the ribbon-cuttings."

6:43 PM PT: Pre-school for every child: "That's something we should be able to do."
6:44 PM PT: The thing I like most about this speech—even in the parts where I don't fully agree with the president—is that this is a speech about what he believes we must do to become a better, stronger nation. This isn't a speech about what he thinks he needs to do to maneuver around Congress. He's not trying to navigate the possible, he's trying to expand the universe of what's possible.
