Do you watch the State of the Union address?

Hi everyone. I haven't had a chance to get back here in the last week or so and I have a lot of reading to catch up on!! After all of the political stories and comments from the last few weeks, I'm really curious to see what President Obama is going to say in the state of the Union tomorrow night. I think it's important to watch, since it seems to be a time when most everyone is listening at the same time, but I am also a bit jaded about it ... maybe because of its carefully crafted nature and of course the commentary from the new shows immediately following. Anyway, I'm hoping that it can be a defining moment to outline the administration's plans for the next two years, addressing healthcare and jobs. And I do hope that there is some way for it to be a uniting moment, but that might be asking a bit too much! Do you make a point to watch it or do you just follow up afterward with the transcript? Anything you hope to see/hear?

Why would we need to have divisions?
