President Obama gave his final State of the Union Address, and the reviews were divided along political lines. Democrats found it a strong look back and steady look forward. Republicans said it was make believe.

John Zogby finds that Obama's State of the Union address was one of the president's best speeches yet.

"A wistful president looked ahead to his last year while reviewing his past seven. He was speaking to a Congress that he lost in 2010 and 2014 and smaller audience at home than ever before for a State of the Union. He ignored some elephants in the room -- Americans taken hostage by Iran, his own invitees in the first lady's gallery -- but he listed his accomplishments and the necessary changes that still lie ahead.

"To me he played the role of an elder statesman who said that he would not waste his last year in office. To opponents he fell flat. It was a legacy speech, one of the best he delivered during his tenure, and one where he admitted some of his own failings and lot of those of his opposition. There are no more big bumps to get in the polls, but his numbers went up."
