We asked writers, activists and academics to think big and write pie-in-the-sky parts of President Obama’s State of the Union address, which he’ll deliver on Tuesday. What would they like to hear from him about climate change, national security, education, unemployment, and more?
Their suggestions provide an educated and enlightened look at major challenges and possible solutions the president, Congress and our nation will be debating in the coming weeks and months.
Also tell us: If you could write Obama’s speech, what would you include? Share your national priorities in the comments below each contribution.
