A question on the State of the Union~

The State of the Union is an address by the President of the United States.  As far as I know, it's not a debate.  Why does the Governor of Virginia get a platform for a "rebuttal"????  Not that I agree with every single thing our President said, but I respect the office, and I was certainly inspired by his passionate oratory that was in excess of an hour.

Wouldn't it be so awesome if the American people tried thinking for themselves instead of looking to some news program to think for them?   I guess people would have to watch it in the first place...
