President Obama’s State of the Union speech addressed the topics on our minds and hearts. Op-ed columnist, Charles M. Blow, believes we heard the “real” President Obama on Tuesday night: the one who does not have to worry about re-election; the man we elected to lead with his brains and heart; the one who no longer has to dance around Congress and public opinion. The president who can  lead us forward with his courage, conviction and grace.
