Obama will take his health-care pitch on the road again for a speech in Minneapolis Saturday.

On Sunday, he'll be on "60 Minutes."

On Monday, he'll give a speech on the financial crisis, marking the one-year anniversary of the Lehman Bros. collapse.

My brother happened to be in a doctor's waiting room out west during the Obama joint-session speech this week. He was sitting next to an 8-year-old patient, there with his mom, who had undoubtedly heard Obama's speech in school the day before.

The 8-year-old looked up at the screen, and exclaimed, "Another speech?!?"

He continued: "Is this the last one?!? Didn't he just give one?!?"

As my brother put it, he didn't sound like anyone had coached him to be anti-Obama; he was genuinely confused. Get ready for more confusion, kid.
