President Obama will try to steal some attention away from the Republican contest tonight. He goes to Capitol Hill to make his State of the Union address. And he may get a big audience – in recent years as many at 50 million Americans have tuned in for at least part of the speech.

The President will outline his vision for creating what he calls a new sense of fairness and opportunity.
