Prior to President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley gushed that the President “will be taking what you might call a valedictory lap” as he starts his final year in office while Face the Nation host John Dickerson ruled that the President offers “a message of hope” compared to one that’s “fearful of change” made by conservatives and Republicans.

At the top of CBS’s coverage of the speech, Pelley opined that since Tuesday night “could be the last time he'll have so large a national audience,” the President will seize on that chance to “tak[e] what you might call a valedictory lap as he heads into his last year in the White House.”
