A Grown Up at the State of the Union

Tonight as President Obama fulfills his Constitutional obligation to report to the Congress on the State of the Union, COASTers will be quite pleased at what we don't see.

As Deirdre Shesgreen at the Enquirer reported, we won't see our Congressman waiting breathlessly to shake Obama's hand and get an autograph. More importantly, we will know that our Congressman didn't spend an entire day (10-12 hours) waiting at that aisle seat to guarantee a chance at a few seconds of television time and the aforementioned autograph.

No, our Congressman has made it clear that he will not become a "Aisle Hog," and that he will be attending to his duties as a Congressman today. Thank you Congressman Wenstrup for returning dignity to the Second District's Congressional Representation.

Be sure to check out this great piece by National Journal on the Curse of the Aisle Hogs.
