Obama To Give State Of The Union

The State of the Union speech is the Super Bowl for political nerds. (Trust us, we know of what we speak.) While we will know much of what President Obama plans to say and propose — like bringing home 34,000 troops from Afghanistan — before he even hits the House floor around 9 p.m., a thousand storylines will be born tonight. Some of them will have to do with how much time Obama devotes to things like guns and other hot-button issues. Others will center on how Republicans respond to what Obama proposes. Still others will focus on the theatrics — a nice way of saying circus — that will happen on Capitol Hill tonight. (Ted Nugent will be there! Tony Bennett will be there!)/Chris Cillizza, Washington Post, The Fix blog. More here.

Question: What do you want to hear from President Obama tonight?
