…is strong.

In terms of the address itself, President Obama (through planning and happenstance) approaches his State of the Union speech in a stronger position than any president in recent memory. Since his midterm shellacking, Obama has seen an extraordinary political recovery and expectations for the speech itself aren't too high for him to meet. The combination of his momentum, bipartisan seating arrangements and the emotion in the hall sure to be generated by guests from Arizona means the president is almost certainly going to have a boffo evening that plays to his political strong suits. Now he just has to deliver.
