FILE - In this March 9, 2011 file photo, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard addresses a joint meeting of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington. Given anywhere else, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech Tuesday wouldn’t cause such a fuss. But a foreign leader denouncing U.S. policy from within the grand hall of American democracy upends nearly two centuries of tradition. A joint meeting of Congress, gathering senators and representatives together in the House chamber, is a ceremony typically bestowed on one or two friendly foreign leaders per year. It looks a lot like a presidential State of the Union address. The speaker embodies his or her nation; the audience of lawmakers represents all American/ She is joined by Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, left, and Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, president pro temper of the Senate. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
