President Obama's State of the Union Address 2010 Preview
President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address for 2010 will take place Wednesday, January 27th at 9 p.m. Eastern time and 6 p.m Pacific. Based on the past, Obama's speech should last just under an hour, as no State of the Union Address has gone more than 60 minutes since President Bill Clinton's hour-and-a-half speech in 2000.
The address will focus on the federal deficit and job creation.
For those unable to find a television for the address, there are a variety of ways to catch the speech online. The White House will be streaming the speech at the official website, and the official White House iPhone application will also be streaming it for iPhone users.
Facebook will allow its users to watch the speech through the Official White House application, and the feed will have real time status updates shown alongside the video. Facebook is also teaming with CNN in it's broadcast. YouTube will have a similar feature on the Citizentube channel, where users will be able to comment in real time as the speech plays, with additional coverage from General Wesley Clark, economist Nouriel Roubini and other experts.
Finally, C-Span and Hulu will be streaming the speech.
Obama's Address has garnered plenty of interest, as a struggling economy and high unemployment rate is at the forefront of American's minds. The speech has also received attention when the date was changed after a Lost season premiere conflict, and PETA's racy State of the Union Address parody.
