Profiles in Courage. Senator Mitt Romney today voted against his party and found President Trump guilty of obstruction of congress. The Senator had previously courted the President for a cabinet job. Last night at the end of the President's State of the Union address, Speaker Nancy Pelosi publicly ripped up her copy of the speech while still on the dais behind President Trump. Which of these two giants deserves this year's Profile in Courage Award?

The State of the Union. President Trump's State of the Union address was met with standing ovations and icy silence depending on which side of the aisle members of congress were sitting on. Moments that illustrated the divide included references to abortion, the Second Amendment, immigration, and when the President called America "the most exceptional republic ever to exist in all of human history. And we are making it greater than ever before." Non-partisan applause broke out the declaration that AIDS would be eradicated in America by the end of this decade, the assurance that every citizen in the country has access to high-speed internet, and the mention of the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. What do you think of the speech?
