Obama plugs final State of Union address on new video
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says his final State of the Union address will focus on the "big things" he thinks will make the country stronger and more prosperous.
The White House on Wednesday released a brief video of Obama sitting on top of his Oval Office desk and talking about the speech he'll deliver from the Capitol next Tuesday night.
Obama doesn't give any clues about the "big things" that are on his mind. But he says he's never been more optimistic about a year ahead than he is at this moment.
He promises that his advisers are coming up with news ways for viewers to watch and engage with the nationally broadcast speech.
Obama closes by telling viewers that Tuesday's address "will be for you."
