SOTU 2013: What Pres Obama will talk about


Foreign Policy rounds up the main FP items that will likely appear in the speech tonight: climate change, nuclear weapons, immigration, alliances & trade, and Afghanistan. Highlights:

-- Nuclear nonproliferation efforts will be given an additional boost tonight as the administration returns to one of their "signature" issues. In the wake of North Korea's nuclear test, it may raise the profile of any announcement on this front.

-- The president will announce details on steep troop reductions (to the tune of 34,000) in Afghanistan.

-- Climate change, immigration, & trade alliances will be framed in terms of improving domestic economy and creating new jobs.
