re: Dignity and SOTU


Ramesh: I will see you and raise you. The president should return to the olden days, way back in history times, when the State of the Union was a written report submitted to Congress–not a televised spectacle. I gather that Washington and Adams delivered an oral SOTU; Jefferson halted the practice and it wasn’t until Wilson that it started again.
