A presidential speech to Congress is one of those all-American moments that ooze ritual and decorum.The White House is promising that Trump's first address to Congress will be a forward-looking one about the "renewal of the American spirit".The staid setting of the House chamber doesn't play to Trump's strengths.Trump has shown he can stick to a script, but not necessarily the one people expected.Already, Democrats have made a point of inviting immigrants and foreigners to attend Trump's speech as a choreographed counterpoint to his exclusionary immigration policies.There is no shortage of bad blood between the Democrats and Trump. Waldman said that pointed opposition from Democrats could throw Trump off his game, as well.Kall says heckling from Democrats or others in the chamber could be just the thing that energizes Trump and gives his speech extra zing.
