First up, we have what will certainly be an excrutiatingly long and boring SOTU speech outlining billions in new spending despite the fact that Obama just announced a spending freeze.

After that, we citizens will get the opportunity to ask him questions via YouTube for an online town hall. I'm going to chime in with something like, "Why, Mr. President, do Republicans hate you and sick people so much?"

After the President's speech begins this Wednesday (1/27) at 9pm EST, anyone will be able to submit a follow-up question and vote on others at  Then next week, the President will answer questions in a special online event, live from the White House.

Along with David Plouffe's reassurance that,"The President's resolve has never been stronger to keep fighting for health insurance reform," and insistence that Democrats not "take lectures on spending," the White House is right back on the track to political rejuvenation.
