President Obama Takes You Tube Questions Today -
at 2:30 PM ET, the president will take your questions and answer them on You Tube. You can watch here.
Earlier, in the day, Obama will meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for an update on Afghanistan/Pakistan.

While, the state of the union address was well received, some have pointed out the absence of any mention of Afghanistan, gun control - in light of the Tucson Tragedy, and the breakdown in the Middle East peace process.

Rumors say the president will address gun control in an separate upcoming speech.

Perhaps, on the agenda when the president meets with Clinton is the current situation in Egypt where demonstrators have openly displayed their dissatisfaction of the 30 year rule of President Hosni Mubarak.
