The State of the Union
Last Wednesday marked the fifteenth year of our marriage.
Established in the year nineteen ninety-four;
this union has seen many, many, ups and downs.
Since the beginning of the term, we have had a population increase of six.
(three junior senators, and three lady speakers of the house.)
Although we have not yet managed to balance the budget, fiscal responsibility is fiercely debated in the kitchen till the wee hours of the morning.
Dean is the Commander in Chief responsible for providing for the common defense,
and to promote the general welfare.
Hilary is the Secretary of the Interior with the charge to establish justice,
and insure domestic tranquility.
Through thick and thin, through tragedy and joy, through heartbreak and laughter,
through boredom and monotony… this union remains.
May the years to come bring a lot more of the same,
but a little less stubbornness (Dean) and a little more humility (Hilary).
