A few hours before President Obama delivers a speech to a joint session of Congress, Ken Rudin looks ahead at what he might say.

While the speech is likely to focus on the economy and his plans to fix it, other issues, such as administration initiatives in health care, energy and climate change, could come up.

What do you want to hear from the president? What would you ask him if you could? What role should Republicans play in the opposition?
