WASHINGTON, Jan 12 : Barack Obama gives his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, perhaps the last opportunity of his presidency to sway a national audience and frame the 2016 election.
The White House is promising an unorthodox speech, with Obama eschewing the traditional checklist of legislative priorities.
Instead, aides said that America's first black president will use a "singular moment" to define his place in the history books and stoke optimism about the future. The speech, under construction since the autumn, will challenge Americans to address big unfinished business, from race to gun violence to drug abuse.      ?AFP
