#sotu140: Can you write Obama’s address in one tweet?

The Ticket

Here at The Ticket we have a challenge for our readers: As President Obama prepares to deliver the State of the Union address Tuesday night, distill your assessment of the nation into one tweet. Then add a "#sotu140" hashtag so we can feature you on Yahoo.

Here's an example of a State of the Union tweet we came up with:

Jobs numbers up, but many, esp. veterans and small biz, still hurting. No clear exit in Afghanistan; Iraq over. What's up with TSA? #sotu140

(Okay, technically with the hashtag you only have 132 characters.) Over the next two days and during the speech we'll be combing through all the entries and posting some of them here and on our Twitter account.
