I have noted before that Senate Majority Leader is an especially poor launching pad for a presidential campaign. Let’s add to that list the SOTU response speech, as let’s face facts: one will almost certainly come across poorly in comparison to the president (any president-if anything because the president speaks to a joint session of Congress, and the response is usually given to a camera) and such speeches are almost uniformly boring. Beyond that, a lot of people have almost certainly tuned out by the time the speech airs.

Along these line, Ed Rollins correctly notes:

“Everybody thinks [the response] is a great launching pad,” said CNN political contributor and White House veteran Ed Rollins, “I wouldn’t recommend to any of my clients, whatever you do don’t take the honor.”
