February 15, 2013:
This week, with the State of the Union, President Barack Obama delivered his first major address after his second inaugural speech. Most polls showed a favorable reception to the speech, which emphasized domestic issues including raising the minimum wage, voting reform, and a bigger push on passing immigration legislation. But with a divided Congress and a country of competing constituencies, how much can be accompanied in a lame duck Obama presidency?
