Alaska Rep. Young breaks tradition to attend State of Union speech

For the first time since 1974, Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, plans to attend the president's State of the Union speech. Young told his staff Monday he hasn't attended a State of the Union address since his first term of office. Generally, Young stays home and watches the speech on television rather than crowding into the House chambers with much of the country's political leadership.
