“Ang isang kahalagahan ng SONA ay kahit paano, binibigtas ng pangulo ang mga bagay na gusto niyang gamitin natin para timbangin ang gawain ng pangulo. Sila ang nagbibigay sa atin ng paraan upang bigyan sila ng grado, at nasa atin kung tatanggapin natin ito o magiging paraan ito para bigyan natin ng suporta o bawiin natin ang ating suporta sa pangulo.”
