Many members of Congress are planning on ignoring the tradition of sitting by political party and intermixing as much as possible. Some here in NY are thinking about getting all the NY Reps to sit together - intermixed by political party. What are your thoughts about this? Also, did you know that one member of the Cabinet is always missing from the Speech? Do you know why? And for the same reason, I would like to see two senators, 2 Congressman, 1 Supreme Court Justice and 1 General of the Joint Chief of Staff with the Cabinet member.
