3:01 am
>> announcer: from abc news this is "world news now." and we do say good wednesday morning to you, everyone. i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm reena ninan. well, he said it was going to be a shorter state of the union. >> yeah. >> it's almost an hour. that's not short in my book. >> well, it's short compared to bill clinton's one that would run two hours. but yeah, they did keep the applause lines down and he did keep the policy initiatives -- >> and some funny moments, kendis. i thought he had some funny lines and there were some funny unintended moments we're going to talk about later this half hour. >> it was an interesting night. kind of a sad night for many people to see the president go out. >> his eighth and final state of the union address. >> yeah. and that's where we're going to get started right now because in a lot of ways he sounded less legislative and with a to-do list and more shall we say like valedictory farewell. the president, he did outline an ambitious future for america but warned it cannot happen in our current culture of divisive politics. >> and abc's bazi kanani joins
3:02 am
us from capitol hill. bazi, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, reena. good morning, kendis. the president did briefly lay out his legislative goals for the year ahead but his message was mostly focused not so much on lawmakers in the chie chambe at voters in the audience at home. >> the president of the united states! >> reporter: making his way up the house chamber aisle for his last state of the union address, president obama called for more civility in politics. >> how can we make our politics reflect what's best in us and not what's worst? >> reporter: flanked by his vice president and for the first time by new house speaker paul ryan, president obama focused his message on the future, saying the country must figure out how to adjust to a changing economy, to tackle climate change and to fight terrorism. >> if this congress is serious about winning this war and wants to send a message to our troops and the world, authorize the use of military force against isil.
3:03 am
take a vote. >> reporter: but republicans challenged the president. >> the president's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words. >> reporter: gop response from south carolina governor nikki haley also included a swipe at donald trump. >> it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. >> reporter: it was among the points of agreement. the president also referencing the heated rhetoric in the campaign for his successor. >> we need to reject any politics, any politics that targets people because of race or religion. this is not a matter of political correctness. >> reporter: the president joked that he would keep his speech short because there were presidential candidates in the audience eager to get back to iowa. later today the president departs for his post-state of the union tour, including stops in nebraska and louisiana. reena, kendis? >> yeah, i thought that was a really funny moment when the president said that. you know, it is a big moment for people like governor nikki haley giving the response.
3:04 am
bill clinton did it. we know senator marco rubio did it. how did nikki haley do? she's been talked about as being a potential vp candidate. >> reporter: well, the reaction to her address depends on which side of the republican divide you ask. speaker ryan, other republican leaders are commending her for her performance. on the other hand, donald trump supporters and several republican pundits are not so happy about her speech. they didn't like that veiled dig at trump. ann coulter, for example, tweeted that trump should deport her. pretty harsh. >> all right. thank you. thank you, bazi kanani there on capitol hill. >> and stay with abc news as we get more reaction to last night's address. we'll bring you some of the lighter moments, as i mentioned, later this half hour. but we want to get to our other major story this morning. a confrontation between the u.s. and iran in the persian gulf. ten u.s. sailors and their two small boats were detained by iran when one of the boats became disabled and drifted into iranian waters. now, iran held them overnight

3:08 am
