Political Voices of Women Have Their Say About President's Address to Congress

At 9pm EST, Tuesday, February 24th, US President Barack Obama will be delivering what political observers are referring to as his first State of the Union Address.

As Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times wrote:
"President Obama will use his first address to Congress on Tuesday to present a road map for “how we get to a better day,” a senior adviser says, in a speech intended to explain his economic policies and argue that legislative revisions on health care, education and energy are crucial to lifting the economy."

Viewers on Main Street, Wall Street and the Global Highway are certain to be watching and listening to President Obama's every word but no one will be listening more closely than the bloggers of The Political Voices of Women.

Starting at 8pm on Tuesday. Political Voices of Women will be hosting a live-blogging simulcast on Twitter and CoverItLive

You're invited to join panelists: Jill Zimon of Writes Like She Talks; Janet Shan of Black Political Thought; Marcia G. Yerman of The Huffington Post; Tami Winfrey Harris of What Tami Said; yours truly, Pamela Lyn of Pam's Coffee Conversation and a few of our closest friends and fellow bloggers as we discuss the President's Address and the response of the political pundits.

I promise that these ladies will tell you exactly what they think and you know that I will too. But we what to hear from you, our readers and Twitter followers.

We want to know:
  • What do you want to hear from the President?
  • Do you think that his plans will improve your life, or your neighbors?
  • Do you think that Congress will work with him?
  • Can the President rescue the economy and cut the budget?
  • Do you think that Washington will overcome its old partisan habits?
  • Can the American people really change its ways? Can Wall Street?
  • and more.
