SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – AT 11:31 P.M. ET:

PREVIEW – Michael Barone reports that President Obama, apparently stung by complaints that his inaugural was too partisan, will try to make Tuesday's State of the Union message more inclusive, focusing on the economy and the plight of the middle class.  We'll see.  Whatever he says, Chris Matthews will love it.

OUTRAGE – Nine female polio vaccinators have been shot dead in Nigeria, apparently as a result of complaints by Muslim clerics that the vaccine causes infertility, or polio itself.  The ignorant campaign by clerics is cited as one of the main reasons why Nigeria is one of only three countries still has polio epidemics.   Notice the deep concern of the
"international community."

GOING VIRAL – Reader Claude Williams reminds us of a remarkable address given by Dr. Benjamin Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast this week, in the presence of the president and first lady.  Carson took on Obama's policies, and the general moral character that we see in too many people today.  The video has gone viral.  Take a look.  It's here.
