Moderator: Gwen Ifill The State of the Union is on Tuesday. What will President Bush say? How will he say it? And how will he balance domestic priorities with the prospect of war? We preview the State of the Union with Alexis Simendinger of National Journal. The Bush Administration presses on, making the case for war with Iraq. Key allies are urging restraint. David Sanger of the New York Times is just back from a tour of Berlin, Paris and London. We take a look at the positions of these nations. And, finally, the Democratic candidates came together this week for the first time, and all signs point to new entrants in the coming months. Gloria Borger of U.S. News and World Report has that story. ~ [26 minutes]
