Welcome to The Washington Post Opinions team’s State-of-the-Union-watch party. We know we have a lot of competition for your attention tonight. It’s Mardi Gras! And they’ll be awarding Best in Show at Westminster! But if you stay with us, you’ll find out before the speech is even done what all the pundits will be talking about later tonight and tomorrow. How can a political junkie pass that up? Your hosts here this evening include Jonathan Capehart, EJ Dionne, Greg Sargent, Jamelle Bouie, Matt Miller, Kathleen Parker, Ed Rogers, Hilary Rosen, Jennifer Rubin, Marc Thiessen and Erik Wemple. And Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes will be serving up live sketches. Please refresh for updates — we’ll be posting tweets in reverse-chronological order, so you don’t have to do lots of scrolling. And please dive into the comments section and tell us what we got right, what we got wrong and what we missed.
