Don’t feel bad if you’ve nodded off during a State of the Union before. It can be a bit of a bore, even for people who practically live for this stuff.
Take Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who admitted to reporters Tuesday that he’s guilty of catching some Z’s during the annual presidential address. “I have frankly dozed off once or twice — not during the Obama years, of course,” the Nevada Democrat said.
In fact, when asked if there was anything he was afraid President Obama would say tonight, Reid responded, “The only thing that would ever trouble me is if he said, ‘Reid, stop dozing off.’ “
Lucky for him (and those of you at home, of course), the speech isn’t expected to be a record-breaker. At least that’s what Reid has been told.
