Although it&#39;s an election year, the administration went out of its way to reinforce that this was not a campaign speech, just a report on the progress being made. Apparently, the state of the union is pretty much exactly what we thought it was: good, getting better, but not quite great. Oh, it&#39;s definitely going to be great someday, because America has been great before and we will be great again soon. How soon? Well, that&#39;s the question. Tomorrow? Next month? 2014?
