State of Whose Nation?

After the confirmation of Judge Alito, Bush will arrive at the podium tonight feeling very flushed with victory. However, the nation and the world will be looking for some acknowedgement of a failed occupation in Iraq with some strategies for ending the bloody mess we have created and provoked. Will Bush step up to this with candor and energy? Will he explain how he now intends to comply with US law about spying of citizens? Will we just hear the usual self-congratulatory phrases and hollow judgments. We wait.
