WASHINGTON, DC- Jan. 25: Rep. John L. Mica, R-Fla., and Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., talk as they wait for President Barack Obama to arrive to deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress. In the wake of the Jan. 8 shootings in Tucson, Ariz., that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), there has been a push for lawmakers to break from the tradition of partisan seating at the State of Union address. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
