State of the Union - movie poster
We saw the Deep Dish performance of State of the Union last night. It was played close to the 1946 original. I ran down to pick up a copy of the 1948 movie version directed by Frank Capra with Tracy, Hepburn, Lansbury, Johnson and company.

Now as I check the RSS from Slashdot, I see that Larry Lessig could be up for a version of the Spencer Tracy role as a congressional version of Grant Matthews. Facebook “Draft Lessig for Congress.”

Will Larry be like Grant, who ends up saying he will work from the outside of the process, or like Capra’s “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)” taking on corruption face-to-face?
