President to reach out after reaching out

Washington (CNN) - Call it the call after the speech.

Minutes after President Barack Obama finishes delivering the State of the Union address, he'll be phoning into a conference call with supporters across the country.

The call is being put together by Organizing for Action, the non-profit grassroots organization that was formed out of the Obama re-election campaign. The group is also organizing State of the Union watch parties Tuesday night.

OFA's website has been advertising the call by the president, saying "after he delivers the State of the Union, President Obama is hopping on the phone for a special online call with supporters to talk through how we can help put his words into action."

An OFA official tells CNN that so far thousands of supporters have already signed up to listen into the call, which is expected to last around ten minutes in length.

    Here we go again....Still campaigning with his supporter. It's a shame but he has a relationship with half of the country, but gives the other half a one finger salute.
