US President Barack Obama has delivered his State of the Union address, his first since being re-elected, to a joint session of Congress.

BBC North America Editor Mark Mardell covers the ins and outs of American political life, from the manoeuvrings of the Obama administration to Beltway horse-trading and key electoral races.

We were planning to join Mark for a live Twitter chat on Monday 11 February. This has been postponed, please keep an eye on this page for further announcements.

We hope to do the Q&A later this week.

Mark will be answering your questions directly from his Twitter account @BBCMarkMardell.

When it's over, we'll collect together all the questions and answers and publish them on this page of our website.
