Tonight's State of the Union was the 'wish list.'

And there were some very fine and workable ideas contained in that avalanche of possibilities.

Tomorrow begins the hard work of coming up with a 'prioritized list.' 

And the shame is that many of the good ideas are not constrained so much by budget,  or capability, but by special interests and ideologies, and petty jealousies and in-fighting.  

And I hate to say, a growing mindset amongst the powerfully fortunate that if something does not directly benefit them in the short term by increasing their wealth and power, then it must be stopped no matter what, and the rest be damned.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the essence of politics, at its worst in dysfunctional organizations, companies and countries, that are set against themselves in all its inglorious ugliness, given the fallen state of the human condition, and the pure damned cussedness of people.

Let the games begin.
