Lady in Red and The State of the Union

First thing I noticed in the House of Representatives chamber tonight for the State of the Union Address: lots of women in red. The color blue was a close second. Did red have some sort of significance other than they wanted to stand out? Did I really want Chris DeBurgh’s song running through my head tonight? (Regarding the second question: no, not really. But Michael did inform me we have an MP3 of that song. Yikes!)

I would be immensely grateful to anyone who could explain to the President that it’s new-clee-urr, not new-kyew-lur.
