2013 State of the Union: LIVE Updates and Analysis Of Obama's Speech

On Tuesday night, President Obama will give his first State of the Union Address of his second term. Follow along here for live streaming, updates and analysis.

What to expect

President Obama’s second inaugural address set a bold vision for American liberalism with its focus on values of inclusiveness and fairness. During his 2013 State of the Union address, the president is expected to outline the steps he plans to take over the next four years to strengthen the economy, reform American immigration policy, and address climate change--all while tackling a liberal agenda of improving minority rights and increasing access to opportunity.

When and where to watch

The State of the Union address is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday, February 12. A live stream of the address will appear on this page.

Why watch?

Of all of his State of the Union addresses, this may be the president’s most informative and instructive, providing a summary of what he has already accomplished, and listing what he hopes to achieve in his second term. Thus far in 2013, we have seen an unabashed president, confident in his liberalism and policy record. The 2013 State of the Union is likely to take on a similar tone to that of his inaugural address—popular as it was with his party — while attempting to extend an olive branch to Republicans across the aisle who will be vital to the success of his second term.
