talk about the speech. good morning. >> good morning. >> i have to say one person i saw on twitter said there would be a lot more viewers if at the end of the speech he would give us all the powerball numbers. [ laughter ] >> those of you who missed the speech, obama was a lot more feisty this year in his state of the union speech. he made jokes and jabs and came off confident going into his last term. >> it's not too much of a stretch to say that some of the only people in america who are going to work the same job in the same place with a health and retirement package for 30 years are sitting in this chamber. >> nervous laughter. he made several comments like that throughout the night and he seemed relaxed, maybe a bit happy for not having to campaign for re-election. he seams to be feeling song and free -- he seems to be feeling strong and free in his time year in office. look for him to continue to use executive orders to stay the course on foreign policy

presidential candidate. >> for a more establishment candidate for someone more mainstream with the republicans. >> not mr. trump? >> maybe not. >> i thought it was interesting that the president talked about his biggest regret of his presidency and his biggest regret was that he could not bridge the gap between democrats and republicans. >> yeah. that the rancor had gotten to such a fever pitch during his presidency. he tried to sort of give another message of conciliation last night. whether or not in a takes hold, eh, i'm not terribly optimistic but we can hope. >> he said it would be short. and it was. a little over an hour. right? >> that's right. it was fairly short for a state of the union speech although of course donald trump said it was boring and far too long. it's too long for some people. >> melissa caen, thank you so much for your insight. today workers at mineta san jose airport are getting more training how to recognize and report suspects cases of human trafficking. the airports are magnets for
