The 'enhanced' State of the Union

Further to Fergus' post about Hillary Clinton's 'masterful harnessing of digital tools', we ought to give a nod to the White House as well. Below is what it calls an 'enhanced' version of the President's State of the Union speech, with photos and graphics illustrating the themes Obama is addressing at that moment.

Actually, it's really just a juiced-up Powerpoint presentation. Or a bit like Stephen Colbert's The Word segment, without the laughs.



UPDATE: Further on the SOTU, Matt Yglesias asks what we might have thought if Hu Jintao had delivered the kind of speech Obama gave yesterday.
