Obama @ 6

President Obama's speech starts at 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, or as close to that as possible after he gets in the door, walks down the aisle and gets to the podium.

Members of Congress have been told the speech will take about 50 minutes, allowing time for expected applause pauses.

Some of the Washington and Idaho delegations may duck out a tad early; others might be caught on camera in Statuary Hall, which is where the national press corps waits to get the congressional take on the president's speech.
