State of the Union

State Preview: Today, President Obama offered a preview of his state of the union address he gives on Tuesday. The prez plans to talk about overhauling the tax code, strongly defend his health care reform and talk about economic progress while acknowledging much more needs to be done, according to published reports, including the New York Times. I'm curious how this next topic will go over... He is supposed to discuss deficit reduction, but he is also supposed to talk about the need to spend more in some areas. Will Americans go for that at a time polls show they want Washington to spend less? Or will they be tolerant of it if he spends more in select areas (education and infrastructure), while cutting spending in others?
