Thanks for watching. Live blogging is a challenge. I do it just so that my first reactions to the speech are recorded.

I appreciate the challenge, and the fruits of your efforts. I addressed your concerns over the "liberal" label in an update to my post, so I would hope that you need have no further worries on that count. (If it really worried you, I could remove you from my list, but I like having a spectrum of opinion.)
