An Agreeable Speech

First Read: "When it came to the issues, Obama's State of the Union was agreeable in tone -- he laid out what he was for (on the economy, immigration, health care) but did so hoping that some Republicans could agree with him. It wasn't confrontational. And not surprisingly, it tested well: According to CNN's instant poll, 76% of viewers had a positive reaction to the speech (though the sample was made up of a disproportionate number of Democrats because those folks were more likely to watch the address). It also seemed designed to unite the Democratic Party ahead of this year's upcoming midterm elections."
