Big speeches offer politicians the chance to paint a portrait of vibrant themes, lifelike reality, or beautiful utopias. Rarely, though, does a politician attempt to paint all of those at the same time.
Unless, of course, you're Gov. Jerry Brown.
This week's Capitol Connection podcast is a look back at the State of the State address delivered by Brown on Thursday. Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I discuss both the messaging and the messenger... and what it might mean for 2013.
