State of the Union Preview

President Obama will use his State of the Union address on Tuesday "to define an activist role for government in promoting a prosperous and equitable society, hoping to draw a stark contrast between the parties in a time of deep economic uncertainty," the New York Times reports.

Obama will promise a populist "blueprint for an American economy that's built to last," with the government assisting to ensure "an America where everybody gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everybody plays by the same set of rules."

With three days remaining until the speech, the Washington Post reports Obama said he has yet to finish writing his address, "so there might be a few late nights between now and then."
