— NPR's Mara Liasson reports that President Clinton took no notice of the Monica Lewinsky scandal during his State of the Union address last night. Instead he reviewed accomplishments like the balanced budget agreement and laid out plans for a series of social programs. He advocated using the projected budget surplus to shore up Social Security and pushed his childcare subsidy plan and raising the minimum wage.
