WASHINGTON - Seats at President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will be filled with the legislative priorities of a bitterly divided Congress. Efforts to humanize intensifying national policy battles will bring some strange bedfellows to the address, where a survivor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre will find herself in the same audience as Ted Nugent, a rocker turned gun rights activist who was the subject of a Secret Service investigation last year after making controversial remarks about Obama.

Record labels, rock stars and high-tech entrepreneurs are slated to testify Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on online entertainment and copyright law. Supporters of Napster Inc., the embattled song-swapping service, are expected to pack the hearing room to hear Chief Executive Hank Barry appeal for a legislative life preserver.
