Obama takes 'one more look' before leaving House chamber

President Obama on Tuesday paused on his way out of the Capitol, saying he wanted to look at the House chamber for the final time after his last State of the Union speech. 

"Alright let me look at this thing one last time," the president said as he stood near the rear of the chamber, turning to look around and wave at speech attendees. "That's kind of cool."
