The president could remain in that conversation with a well-received speech, but given his left-leaning goals stated in his recent inaugural address, the possibility for a divided reception is likely.
Early reports suggest the president will focus on the country's biggest obstacle -- the economy, and will announce the return of 34,000 troops from Afghanistan.
