State Of The Union Address 2011: Time, Length, Details (INFO)

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama delivers the 2011 State of the Union Address tonight, beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern Time and 6 p.m. Pacific Time.

Obama's speech is expected to be about one hour in length based on previous years.

Last year's State of the Union from Obama was the first to hit the hour mark since 2000, clocking in at one hour and nine minutes. But the longest SOTU ever was in 2000, when President Bill Clinton's address spanned an hour and a half.

Obama is expected to focus on jobs, innovation and cooperation in the 2011 State of the Union Address. Here are a handful of predictions on what he might say from HuffPost blogger Chris Weigant.

Tonight's State of the Union Address can be watched LIVE on The Huffington Post. HuffPost will also have a State of the Union live blog, complete with real-time fact-checking in conjunction with the National Journal, the Center for Public Integrity and Sunlight Foundation. The Twitter hashtag #SOTUFacts will be used. The address can also be watched online at WhiteHouse.gov.
