President Obama “previews” his final SOTU speech for tonight

The last State of the Union address by President Barack Obama will be delivered tonight, Tuesday, January 12 starting at 9:00 pm ET.  According to the president himself, tomorrow’s speech won’t be the same old SOTU, and this year, there are more options than ever for how to watch it.

Although it’s been easy to stream the State of the Union for a few years now, the White House is adding even more options for this week’s “nontraditional” address.  White House Chief Digital Officer Jason Goldman wrote a Medium post about why the administration is investing so much energy to make the speech easily available to Americans.

Behold all the options, which are a testament to how much Obama’s White House has worked to bring digital tools to the forefront in an effort to get the president’s messages in front of as many people as possible.

Meet the Guests in the First Lady’s 2016 State of the Union Box – Article with Photos

Last year: 2015 State of the Union Rebekah Erler 
is a guest of First Lady Michelle Obama.  
Rebekah’s family was hit hard by the economic downturn in the housing market when her husband’s construction business went under.
A move from Seattle to Minneapolis and several difficult jobs later, Rebekah’s husband is now back at work in the re-modeling industry. After taking out student loans to attend a local community college for career re-training, Rebekah has returned to the workforce as an accountant.
Her story is one shared by millions of American families, and helps show that too many middle-class families with two working parents are still stretched too thin.
