WASHINGTON (MNI) - President Barack Obama will try to set, or at least
influence, the year's policy and fiscal debate when he delivers his final State
of the Union address Tuesday.
Obama will speak before a joint session of Congress Tuesday night at 9 p.m.
The president is expected to offer a vigorous defense of his record and try
to dispel, or at least respond to, some of the pessimism that has pervaded the
recent political debate.
Obama is also expected to identify several areas of possible bipartisan
agreement this year, including passing the Trans-Pacific Trade agreement,
