Editor's note: U.S. Supreme Court justices are meeting in a closed-door conference today and may decide whether to hear a same-sex marriage case, or multiple cases.

In a departure from that approach, President Obama plans to travel to Detroit, Phoenix and Tennessee next week to promote advances in the auto industry, housing and education, respectively. The live address will be on Jan. 20. - Aaron
