WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will try to revive his "yes we can" image in his first State of the Union address while
offering repackaged plans on the economy and terrorism.
Obama's advisers say he doesn't plan to reshape his agenda Wednesday night so much as better explain and defend it. They say
he'll talk about why he thinks the nation's future economic health
depends on reshaping financial industry regulations, and will detail his administration's efforts to combat terrorism around the globe.
The advisers also say Obama will offer several options for getting health care moving again.
A year into his term, Obama's popularity has fallen 18 percentage points, to 56 percent.
The State of the Union is set for 9 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday.
