What Should Obama Address In The State Of The Union?

03/28/2010 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

This Wednesday will mark Barack Obama's first ever State of the Union address. After a year in office, Obama will try to make sense of America's current situation, and inform the public about his strategies to deal with what he sees as the pressing problems of the nation.

Obama's speech finds the US at a crossroads, to say the least. America is still experiencing profound financial problems, and Obama's recent initiative to enact a three year spending freeze has been roundly criticized. Health care reform has stalled, Afghanistan is intensifying, and gay rights are still a hot button issue.

What do you want to hear Obama speak about in his first ever State of the Union address? How should he approach the state of health care legislation? What needs to be said about the economy? Should he spend time talking about gay rights? What should his priorities be?
