State of the Union: 9/11 Beat the Clock

Guessing how long it will take before President Bush invokes 9/11 in a speech is one of our favorite diversions at the Huffington Post. The over/under is usually around 90 seconds. Will he best that during his upcoming State of the Union address? Given all the pomp and circumstance, it's not likely. But you never know. We'll have our stopwatches handy. In the meantime, click on the image below to watch the latest edition of "9/11 Beat the Clock".

UPDATE: President Bush did not disappoint. It took him just 210 seconds (Three-and-a-half minutes) before he brought up 9/11 -- and that includes his lengthy salutation ("Mr. Speaker, Vice President Cheney, Members of Congress, Members of the Supreme Court and diplomatic corps, distinguished guests, and fellow citizens") and the 28 second standing ovation afforded Coretta Scott King. Impressive.
