      Rather than dial back his ambitions in the wake of his party's loss last week in the Massachusetts Senate election, the president used his State of the Union address Wednesday night to pressure the GOP into working with Democrats by appealing to their collective conscience.

      Republicans responded immediately by saying they've been trying to work with the president all along, but to no avail. Democrats, meanwhile, said the president was dead on, saying Republicans now have an obligation to participate constructively in the legislative process.

      But after Obama pledged to listen to GOP ideas on health care and start monthly meetings with Democratic and Republican leaders, Republicans questioned whether relations would be any different than they've been for the past 12 months.

      House Minority Leader John Boehner said Wednesday that he hadn't spoken with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in a year.
