President Obama and first Lady Michelle wave goodbye as they board Air Force One. Tonight marks President Obama's final State of the Union address.

President Obama is set to deliver his final State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress tonight. His speech is expected to be “non-traditional,” focusing more on his legacy as president and less on work with the legislature. Many speculate he’ll also return to his original campaign mantra of “hope,” encouraging every American that they have the ability to succeed.  Here to preview the President’s address is Dr. Jerry Shuster, University of Pittsburgh professor of presidential rhetoric and political communication.
