In 1995, President Bill Clinton was seeking to rebound from the drubbing that Democrats suffered in midterm elections the previous year, just as President Barack Obama is now. And Clinton’s State of the Union address that year offers a model from which the current president might borrow, The Hill reports.

“Sixteen years later, President Obama’s Tuesday address will sound a familiar note, judging from the president’s own comments in recent days and leaks from the White House about the speech.

The White House is hoping the political symmetry will continue with Obama’s re-election in 2012.”
