Obama to Assert Unilateral Agenda

President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night "will seek to shift the public's souring view of his leadership, a challenge the White House sees as critical to shaping the nation's policy direction over the next three years," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Mr. Obama will emphasize his intention to use unilateral presidential authority--bypassing Congress when necessary--to an extent not seen in his previous State of the Union speeches, White House officials said."
