Responders Trivia

FirstRead, “Counting Rubio, four of the five Obama SOU responders look like a 2016 Iowa Caucus Lineup: Rubio, Ryan, McDonnell, Jindal. But the last eventual party nominee to deliver a response was Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS) in 1996. And the last person to deliver one and go on to be president was Bill Clinton in 1985 when he was governor of Arkansas. By the way, Rubio will be the first senator to deliver the response since Webb in 2007. Six of the last 10 have been governors.”
