Which cliche will Obama say first in SOU speech?

Paddy Power, the Irish bookmaker, is offering odds on President Obama's speech tonight. If you have access to PP's tills, you can bet on which cliché Obama will roll out first, reports Jim Geraghty of the National Review Online.

"We have more work to do" pays 8 to 1. "As I stand here today" pays 10 to 1. "God bless America" pays 12 to 1. (That'll come at the end.) "Life is like a box of chocolates" is the long shot, at 250 to 1. I'm far from Ireland, and the newspaper won't let its journalists bet on politics anyway. But my money would be on "For far too long," at 33 to 1.
