State of the Union Address

Hosted by

Speaking last night to a Congress controlled by Republicans, President Obama sounded to some as if the Democrats won last November’s elections. He proposed legislation and issued veto threats. Can he dominate the agenda for the next two years?

Also, American and Cuban officials commence talks in Havana, and how government corruption threatens global security.
