Looking back on the 2009 investing landscape it's clear that government policy played a vital role in driving the market. The bank stress tests, energy legislation, health-care reform, the stimulus, and myriad other regulations alternatively gave the market heartburn and bouts of euphoria. Following the machinations in Washington became increasingly important for investors.

Even though the economy has stabilized, the actions that government takes, or doesn't take, during the coming months will still have a tremendous impact on stocks. This made President Obama's first State of the Union address on Wednesday particularly meaningful to the investment community.
