As President Obama welcomes Chinese president Hu Jintao to Washington, the House GOP votes to repeal his healthcare bill.  Now, the focus on the State of the Union address & Mr. Obama's economic goals for 2011. Plus, the new wave of retiring senators.  Around the table: Peter Baker (NY Times), Doyle McManus (LA Times), Karen Tumulty (Washington Post) and David Wessel (Wall St Journal).
