WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is preparing to give his first State of the Union address of his second term.

The commander in chief will get an uninterrupted, unchallenged opportunity to talk to the country and to define his agenda. He already gave House Democrats a preview of his speech, which will focus on job creation and education.

The White House says the address will serve as a bookend to the inaugural address, a sign that the president will touch on priorities such as immigration reform, reducing gun violence and clean energy.

You can watch the entire speech LIVE on News 12 The Bronx and on News12.com starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
