change the political environment and people's attitudes, end quote. considering the political climate is polarizeed as it is now as seven years ago, that seems unlikely. democratic partisans claim that is because the republicans never gave this president a chance. republicans insist he never tried to govern across party lines. whatever you believe, the persistent gridlock in washington speaks to chronic levels of ideological pressure around american animosity -- and personal animosity down there. tonight's address is about trying to rekindle obama magic in the hopes that they may rally behind the democratic ticket again as they did twice for him. politically that makes sense. the democratic party is divided
populous of bernie sanders and the establishment pragmatism of hillary clinton. both of them are distancing them from the obama leg gaga -- legacy. i would be surprised based on the previews we are getting if anyone is talking about this speech 48 hours from now. that is no knock on him. that's the way it is with the state of the union. >> it will be interesting to see the cutaways during the speech themselves. >> democrats jump up with their lines and republicans with theirs. we have seen this movie before. >> you can watch the president's address on wbz at 9:00 then stay with us for wbz news at 11:00. new poll numbers out today show bernie sanders has his biggest lead yet over hillary clinton in new hampshire. the poll has sanders leading clinton 53% to 39%. letter the new hampshire primary is about a month away.
