My favorite report on the President's speech comes from Computerworld. The headline expresses exactly how the speech struck me:

Clinton does his Andy Rooney impression

The president's year 2000 conversion speech last week touched on the possible consequences of the millennium bug for Main Street U.S.A. There "could simply be a rash of annoyances, like being unable to use a credit card at the supermarket or the video store losing track of the tape you have already returned. Has that ever happened to you? It really is aggravating," Clinton said. "I just wanted to remind you that I used to have a life, and I know about things like that."
