Which State of the Union Response Is Right For Me?

In America, you've got options.

If President Obama's State of the Union doesn't speak to you, don't worry: This is the year of the State of the Union response. This year, five (and counting) responses will be coming from the HIll. Rep. Michele Bachmann made the inaugural tea-party response in 2011. Rubio was the first Republican to deliver a bilingual response in 2012. It's increasingly become popular to say something about a speech that usually bores, doesn't live up to many of the promises it makes, and doesn't often surprise Americans with the diagnosis of the union (spoiler: it's strong).


Confused about whom you should watch after the speech tonight? Follow this guide.
