As Americans turn from their busy lives to watch President Obama's final State of the Union address, I've been reflecting on the growing momentum in wind energy over the last seven years.
Tonight President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address, where he will reflect on the incredible progress made during the past seven...
As President Obama prepares for his final State of the Union address tonight, there's one critical issue he has neglected over the last few years that bears revisiting: the nuclear threat, which -- along with climate change -- poses the biggest risk to the future of the planet.
We're living in a society of rising disease prevalence, unsustainable health care costs and the near-certainty that health care, as a public policy issue, will continue to be contentious in Washington and on the campaign trail. In 2016, it's time to change our collective attitude.
These addresses often have an optimistic spin, and particularly so as a president nears the end of his term and seeks to cement his legacy, so let me say a few things that Mr. Obama surely knows but may be reluctant to put into words.
This speech will be less of a to-do list and more of a greatest hits tour of Obama's presidency. But it's still an election year. And the president would really like to pass the torch to a Democrat. So if it feels kinda like a campaign speech, that's because it is.
President Obama has said that his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, Jan. 12 will be framed around "the big things" he sees as being priorities in the years to come, rather than taking a policy-centric approach to the speech. He has said that there is more work that needs to be done, and we agree.
Here is what is rarely acknowledged and speaks volumes about Obama's impact: we now accept the sea change in the lives of most Americans that the Affordable Care Act swept in. No one serious challenges the Affordable Care Act's guarantee of insurance coverage for all without the threat of preexisting conditions, the new coverage for the prescription drug benefits for seniors and much more.
If we care at all about future generations, we must listen to the president's call for sensible gun legislation, while at the same time push for national police reform. We cannot address one while ignoring the other.
It's clear now, and will come into stronger focus as the country moves forward, that in spite of continuous opposition, President Obama has been hugely successful in working to cut carbon pollution and take real steps to fight climate change, all while growing the economy and creating tens of thousands of new jobs. And it's time for the Republicans to hop onboard.

The lives of these prisoners and their families have been impacted beyond measure, and the lack of indictment or evidence pointing to their guilt is a damning testimony that their continued detention is a crime against humanity.
As President Obama prepares to deliver his final State of the Union address on January 12, it's difficult to remember how incredibly bad the economy was when he took office seven years ago and how important financial reform is to getting the economy working again for all Americans.
