>President Obama delivers State of the Union address

>President Obama has delivered his second State of the Union address. In the speech, that lasted just over an hour, Obama developed the theme of “winning the future”, discussing future investments, innovation, and ideas. He cited China and India as competitors, but said that the country could reinvent itself to have “this generation’s Sputnick moment”.

The speech will have won over some wavering independents, as the President put himself right on the centre ground. Bold and brave, without being barnstorming, President Obama decided that the best way to deal with a difficult present, was to look to a better future.
