President Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union address Tuesday night, beginning at 9 p.m. from Capitol Hill. News accounts say the president will likely gear his speech to struggles of the country's middle class and growing income inequality. 

An NBC poll released Tuesday says only 28 percent believe the country is headed in the right direction.

You can watch the speech on the major networks, CNN, PBS and C-SPAN. It will also air online.

If you're following the speech on Twitter, look for #SOTU.

Sen. Tim Kaine is hoping "POTUS encourages Congress to build on our recent successes & tackle issues like education, minimum wage #SOTU"

The State of the Union address will be the last, as members of Congress, for two Northern Virginia lawmakers: Congressman Jim Moran (D-8th) and Congressman Frank Wolf (R-10th), who have both recently announced their retirement from Congress.

Look for special guests invited by members of Congress; included? Cast members from the hit (and controversial) reality show "Duck Dynasty." They're the guests of conservative Congressman Lindsey Graham.

Republicans will give their response to the president's address; apparently more than one GOP member will deliver a response, which some say points to divisions in the party. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), the highest-ranking Republican female in Congress, will deliver the official response.

How do you think the country is doing? Do you plan to watch the State of the Union? Tell us in the comments box.
