Posted: Updated:

What was your favourite part of Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday night?

Proposing to raise the minimum wage? Fairer education? Reducing health care costs?

Nah, admit it. Your favourite part was when he fist bumped senator Mark Kirk.

The Illinois Republican senator has made a return to US politics after suffering a stroke in January of last year.

The 53-year-old marked his comeback by climbing the stairs of Capitol Hill on January 3rd with the help of vice president, Joe Biden, cheered on by huge crowds.

Kirk said on the day: "It took me seven months to make these steps."
