SOTU

Thomas Friedman last Friday.
On Tuesday President Bush will deliver his State of the Union and map out priorities for his last three years. The direction in which America needs to go is obvious: toward energy independence. If Mr. Bush steps up to that challenge, this speech could be a new beginning for his presidency. If he doesn't, you can stick a fork in this administration. It will be done - because it will have abdicated leadership on the biggest issue of our day.
News report today.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush will take his State of the Union message on the road Wednesday, traveling to Tennessee where he'll tout his plans to increase American economic competitiveness and to cut U.S. dependence on imported oil.
We should all be pleased that Mr. Bush is now apparently on the same page as Mr. Friedman.
