It may be the only line Americans remember from the 2015 State of the Union address.

Some Republicans in the chamber applauded the idea, but the president was poised with a quick retort.

"I know because I won both of them," he said, referring to his two successful presidential campaigns.

Even Republican Sen. John McCain, his rival in the 2008 election, applauded the joke.
