Grab your popcorn, a cup of tea, and your comfy slippers and bone up on your presidential trivia because we’re ready to have a blast of presidential proportions. Can you tell we’re excited?
Yes, you would have to be living under a rock not to know that this is a presidential election year! How will the president’s speech go over with voters? Will it impact Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney as they battle for the GOP presidential nomination? We'll talk about all of that plus we’ll be giving out $50 gift cards from Amazon.com throughout the night to the history buffs who give the first answer to our State of the Union trivia questions. So study up!
Leading the chat will be a team from iVillage, iVote and iVoices:
- Kelly Wallace, iVillage’s Chief Correspondent
- Joanne Bamberger, Election Editor/Correspondent, iVillage.com/iVote
- Jim Higley, iVoices on iVillage
- Sharon Rowley, iVoices on iVillage
- Esther Crawford, iVoices on iVillage
- Beth Engelman, iVoices on iVillage
