Grain of Salt

It's been really annoying that the drama over Obama's speech to students that will happen tomorrow night is really unnecessary. I speculate that it's most likely not about the speech itself, and not even that a Democratic, African American president is speaking to students. It could be that the opposing political party just is making a fuss. For the record, George HW Bush and Ronald Reagan spoke to students as well and there was a bit of fuss over HW's speech as well. Even famed educator Laura Bush and NASCAR support the speech.

I think that it's also probably waving candy at the general American public to get their minds off of the health care debate.

The speech is fine. Why don't we get back to the real issues, such as healthcare.
