There's One in Every Crowd

Judging from the Washington Post's recount of the State of the Union Adress, the Wapo reporters were the only ones who missed the point of the dramatic embrace during the middle of the speech.

The emotional highpoint of last night's event came near the end when Bush introduced the parents of a U.S. Marine from Texas, Sgt. Byron Norwood, who was killed in the assault on Fallujah, Iraq. As Norwood's mother tearfully hugged another woman in the gallery, the assembled senators and representatives responded with a sustained ovation, and Bush's face appeared creased with emotion.

Are you kidding me, "another woman in the gallery," are these people clueless?
