Reactions on the State of the Union Address


The Democrats are in control of Congress, and the American public is growing more skeptical of the war in Iraq.

Tuesday night President Bush will give his State of the Union Address, and try to convince both groups that his plan for Iraq will work.

Meantime, we spoke to our Congressmen on both sides of the border about the State of the Union.

And they agree about what is most important.

Congressman, what do you expect from the President in his State of the Union, what do you hope to hear from the President in his State of the Union?

“One of things we got to start seeing is bi-partisan cooperation. The White House had it their way for the first number of years and there wasn't a lot of cooperation. But I think the President is going to look into that sea of faces down below knowing there's a majority of Democrats in both the House and the Senate and he understands that to try and impact his legacy of getting something done. We've got so many issues that need work, he's going to have to reach that hand out,” explains Rep. Fred Upton.

“We have to make sure we make progress n things like Iraq, on health care, on energy. These are critical issues to our country, so I look forward to working together to improve all those areas,” says Rep. Joe Donnelly.

And, we will have live coverage of President Bush's sixth State of the Union Address.

Coverage from Capitol Hill begins Tuesday night at nine.
