Obama readies for State of Union address

US President expected to rally voters to keep him in the Oval Office for one more term as elections draw near.

    US President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address on Tuesday in an annual speech before Congress that is considered a report card to the nation.

    But this year as the country heads for the polls it is likely to be more of a campaign speech than anything else.

    Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane has a preview from Washington.
