This evening, or Wednesday morning in the UK, President Obama will make his way from the White house to Capitol Hill - to give the "State of the Union" to a joint session of Congress.

While I will be working on the Hill during the day, I have no intention of being around for this evening - security will be tight, and it will be difficult to move around - so I should be watching it on C-SPAN with friends in Northern Virginia.

Details of the C-SPAN coverage can be found here. There will be a BBC News Special at 2am on Wednesday (UK time).
