Before we move on to other top stories, let's take a quick look at how last night's State of the Union address by President Obama is being portrayed in headlines:
— NPR: "Obama: 'Our Destiny Remains Our Choice' "
— The Wall Street Journal: "Obama Gears Up for a Global Challenge"
— Los Angeles Times: "Obama says U.S. acts 'together, or not at all' "
— Chicago Sun-Times: "Jobs are president's job No. 1"
— The New York Times: "Obama Pitches Global Fight for U.S. Jobs in Address"
— The Washington Post: " 'Win the future,' Obama implores"
— Politico: "In bipartisan tones, Barack Obama challenges GOP"
— The Weekly Standard (conservative): "Not A Winning Speech"
— The Huffington Post (liberal) " 'Our Destiny Remains Our Choice' "
