We're winging our way back from the Show Me State on Scare Force One for the big TV show tonight, and I think it's safe to say we have a few surprises up our sleeves to pump up the ratings.
Based on what's being loaded into my hard-drive, I would look for an apology or two. Or three. We'll have some guest stars for the big musical number to compete with "American Idol," and Bo and I have been working on a little trick to wow the kids watching at home. And that should pretty much cover the hour.
I know what you all are really intersted in: will my screens be visible tonight. Well, as of an hour ago, it appeared they were going with my 50-inch flat screen. But White House R&D has been working on this cool, embedded screen in the podium that we might trot out tonight. Then again, maybe we'll go old school. You'll have to watch to find out.
Oh, and the economy is going to get worse, our European neighbors have rolled us on environment and defense policy, and the porcine bug is the result of a bio-weapon developed by Chavez in partnership with Iran. But why be a downer on such an historic day. Not every President gets his 100 days in the sun like we did.
