NOW in DC

Good morning! We're live today in Washington, following President Obama's State of the Union message. It wasn't a campaign speech but it was made pretty clear last night that his new populist rhetoric will dominate his re-election message over the next few months.

Joining Alex from DC today:

Plus -- Hardball host and friend of the show, Chris Matthews

And -- fresh off his controversial recess appointment, President Obama's Consumer Watchdog Chief, Richard Cordray.

After the jump -- A great picture just released from the White House this morning
