engaged in middle east peace talks that he hopes are going to be fruitful. george, what about foreign policy in this speech, and how much do you expect the president to get into that? >> i would expect him to avoid it like the plague. he can talk about two things, basically, he can talk about syria, where he's defined success down from removing the regime of assad to removing assad's chemical weapons. i would expect him to tread lightly on iran. they've agreed to nothing of importance but they've only agreed to pause an iranian nuclear program that they're determined to accelerate soon. >> attorney general eric holder there shaking hands. we should point out that it is tradition, a lot of lawmakers -- you see elliott engle from new york, democrat, he's often poised right there on the row. to try to get a handshake and face time with the president. a lot of these members have been posted up since about 4:30 this afternoon. you see mark pryor who's up for re-election in arkansas, the senator facing a tough re-election bid. kirstin. >> yeah, to your question about foreign policy,

here. tom harkin and george miller have a bill to fix that by ifting the minimum wage to $10 .10. this will help families and give businesses customers with more money to spend. it does not involve any new bureaucratic program. join the rest of the country. say yes. give america a raise. give them a raise. there are steps we can take to help families make ends meet. fewer are more effected than the earned income tax credit. right now, it helps about half of all parents at some point. think about that. it helps about half of all parents in america at some point in their lives. but i agree with republicans like senator rubio that it doesn't do enough for single workers who don't have kids. let's do more to help americans get ahead. let's help americans save for retirement. today, most americans don't have a pension. social security check often isn't enough on its own. and while the stock market has doubled over the last five years, that doesn't help folks who have 401k's. tomorrow i will direct the treasury to create a new way to elp americans start. myira. new savings bond to encourage

negotiations. and one quick historic note. it was the state of the union back in 2002 when george w. bush said those three little words, "axis of evil", including iran, which was aligned against us with the taliban. and that blew up any hope of diplomacy with iran until now. >> we keep showing this hinting shot of the door in the back of the chamber. the door was closed, and now it's been opened. they keep looking to see if the aisle is clear and people have settled down. paul irving, the sergeant at arms, will walk through there and make the announcement. we happen to know the president is behind those double doors on the left, and he'll come down the aisle. >> you know, brian, i'm just sort of -- three years ago after the shooting with gabby giffords, and for a couple state of the unions in a row, everybody found a bipartisan date. there was more of a dignified feeling about the guests you would invite. boy, you can tell things are a lot different now when you're inviting "duck dynasty" stars. everybody is trying to make a partisan political point. you get the feeling that whateve

veep joe biden, white house political direct for president george w. bush, nara tanden. she was president obama's domestic policy director during his re-election campaign. and cnbc's robert frank. first, let's go to cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood with some setup on what we can expect to hear tonight from the president. john. >> i think we're going hear from a president who is chacened by the political difficulties had he in the last year. he knows that the window is closing for him to get big things done with congress, but he can't afford the perception of a presidency that's paralyzed, so he is going to talk about things he can do on his own like that minimum wage executive order. it doesn't affect that many people, and most of the things that he is talking about doing by executive authority is talking about trying to leverage small amounts of money or policy, hope those little small ripples in the pond create bigger ripples in the country, but he knows the big things that he wants to get done still do depend on congress. things like passing reform in the im

20% less than it was when ronald reagan first stood here. and tom harken and george miller have a bill to fix that by lifting the minimum wage to $10.10. it's easy to remember, 10.10. this will help families. it will give businesses more money to spend. it does not involve any new bureaucratic program. so join the rest of the country. say yes. give america a raise. give them a raise. there are other steps we can take to help families help make ends meet. and helping families pull themselves up, the earned income tax credit helps about half of all parents in america at some point. think about that. but i agree with republicans like senator rubio that it doesn't do enough for single workers who don't have kids. so let's strengthen the credit, reward work, help more americans get ahead. let's do more to help americans save for retirement. today, most workers don't have a pension. a social security check off isn't enough on its own. and while the stock market has doubled over the last five years, that doesn't help folks who don't have 401(k)s. that's why tomorrow i will direct the tre

evening, president obama is about to give us a status report on what george washington called the american experiment, an experiment now in its 238th year. since his last state of the union, the unemployment rate has fallen below 7% since the great recession. some of it because there are more jobs but also because some people have stopped looking for work and are no longer counted as unemployed. since the president's last state of the union speech, more americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. 61% up from 54% a year ago. and the president's job approval rating has dropped from 52% to 46%. joining me tonight are are bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and norah o'donnell, cohost of cbs "this morning." nora, you've been talking to your sources at the white house. what's in the president's speech? >> well, the president tonight in his state of the union will promise a year of action is his words. he will also address the concerns about economic inequality in this country. but it follows, quite frankly, what has been

always right there. doesn't matter who the president is. remember with the kiss with george w. bush? >> yeah. >> yeah. i think the -- what you really want, what you're really looking for, people are really going for it, are people not just on the ooi aisle but on the aisle wearing a fluorescent color. >> that's engel from new york right there. >> my old congressman. >> sheila jackson lee is always hugging that rail. >> look at secretary hagel there. secretary of defense chuck hagel. former republican senator. it was an interesting choice to be defense secretary handling an interesting array of problems right now. i am -- the thing i am most interested in watching for tonight, there's the epa administrator me eor mccarthy. i'm interested in watching whether the president spends time talking about the war in afghanistan. if things go the way he has said, this time next year we will not be at war in afghanistan for the first time in 13 years. this is the year where we're supposed to be talking about the wind-down. will he talk about that with tens of thousands of americans still there

the union. going all the way back to george washington. >> he didn't use to give it in person. occasionally -- remember the congressman from south carolina a couple years ago who yelled out, you are a liar or something. that really is rare. there is a respect of the office for this evening. that you have any sense the political situation is improving in washington? that there is maybe more of an effort for bipartisanship? >> you can make an argument that it can. it began at the end of last year with the budget deal that was negotiated between paul ryan and patty murray. it stands as a model for what obama is going to need to do this year. he stepped back, let members of congress step forward. i think he realizes now, he is too much of a controversial figure to lead the way and bring republicans along on something like a budget or immigration reform. we did pass a two-year budget. it looks like we are going to get a farm bill. but years are starting to function again. i think there is a real limit to what he can achieve. earlier -- we spoke earlier about president clinton and s

washington, diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. >>> and a good evening. and welcome to all of you, as we gather together on this cold night for a lot of the country, for the state of the union 2014. and in just moments, president barack obama is going to walk into the congressional chamber and try to capture the imagination of the american people once again. for this next chapter, george, the last three years of his presidency, it's not going to be easy. >> not at all because he's coming off the worst year of the his presidency, diane. the president has never given one of these speeches as weak politically as he is today. congress dead-set against his agenda. and those who support his policies aren't sure he can get things done. the president's number one job, tonight, convince them he can. >> we want to go into the room tonight. we want to go in the chamber. show you some of the things that's happening. we think the first lady's arriving. here, the cabinet coming in. and jonathan karl is right there, inside that room. jon, tell us what you're seeing and what you've been hearing s
