Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken may not see eye-to-eye on the way forward for health care (She: “scale down;” He: “full bore”), but Minnesota’s two U.S. senators were singing in the same Democratic chorus on the middle-class focus of President Obama’s first State of the Union speech Wednesday night.
 
Franken praised Obama's focus on the economy: “The President is where Minnesota wants him to be – focused like a laser on jobs. The only way we're going to turn this economy around is to put people to work right away."
 
Klobuchar said the jobs focus was the key to Obama's speech. "This focus on innovation and bringing people together to move our economy -- I really believe that was the defining part of the speech, in addition to the talk about regaining people's trust."
