We discuss President Obama's final State of the Union address, delivered Tuesday to a joint session of Congress. The White House said the president's speech would focus on "big ideas" and the direction of the country, rather than specific accomplishments or policy proposals. In this hour, we'll bring you analysis of the address and the president's efforts to define his legacy. And we'd like to know -- what big idea did you hear and like? What big idea was missing from the president's speech?
