This assembly will be President Bush’s final address as leader of the United States and also marks the return of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose appearance last year caused quite a stir. Ahmadinejad’s controversial remarks regarding Israel and the Jews have sparked much outrage and protests. Only time will tell on Tuesday if the Iranian president will steal the show this time with his colorful commentary.
