We know, we know, word clouds are not exactly ground-breaking … but they can be useful in situations like this. Here are Obama’s State of the Union addresses, 2009-2013. (Technically, 2009 was not a State of the Union, but we’re counting it here anyway.)

President Obama and Hillary Clinton “have developed not just a strong working relationship, but also a genuine friendship,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said today. "So," he added, "it’s largely friendship that’s on the agenda for the lunch today." http://usat.ly/17c7RuV(Photo by Chuck Kennedy, White House)

The state of our union

Tomorrow, President Obama will give his fifth State of the Union Address. 

What one word do you think best describe the current state of our union?

There is no controversy about the quality of our current first lady.

A word cloud of Obama’s speech today, with the 100 most-used words shown. 

It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began. For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm.
