"He shall, from time to time..."

For those who are interested, you can read the full text of President Obama's first State of the Union here at CNN.com.

ETA -- Just because I'm a law nerd, here's Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, which requires the President to report to Congress:

"He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States."

I posted (part of) the article on my Facebook page, except all I did was take the West Wing quote, lol.

I'm taking Constitutional Law this semester, so I felt like I had to post the entire section! :-)
