It was Bush. Nixon never lost an actual political race (though he lost a race for President of student council) before 1960, and loss only one race after that, 1962.

George Bush, on the other hand, ran for Texas Senator in 1964 and lost. He ran for Congressman in 1966 and won, winning re-election in 1968. In 1970, he ran again for Senate and lost, then was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations, elected RNC Chairman, appointed Envoy to China, and appointed DCI before entering four years of private life in 1977, and being elected Vice-President in 1980.

Therefore, the answer is George HW Bush.

The last one not to do so in the traditional format (ie as a written report) rather than hold a speech, if that is what you meant, was Big Bill Taft.

EDIT: lol.

Ok, another hint:

The Pope was Pius IX, so this president was alive between 1846 and 1878.

Were they still in office?

Because from what I remember, Wilson was the first sitting president to meet with the Pope...

If it's actually FORMER Presidents... it's who was out of office at the time and still alive...
