Let's face it: Trump's branded water bottles got more exposure last night than Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz spent, like, a thousand dollars in Michigan, and still came in second, as Marco Rubio struggled to pull ahead of Dr. Ben Carson, who dropped out of the race last week, in Mississippi.
Not that I would tell anyone not to pursue their dreams. I mean, catch it, young Marco! Catch it! But if the Republicans are serious about keeping Donald Trump from gold-plating the White House, it's time to pull on some big girl panties, put the animosity of 2012 behind us, admit that while we Ted Cruz has an imminently punchable face, he's might just be the only chance we have.
Carly Fiorina, this morning, led the charge, endorsing Ted Cruz in Marco Rubio's home state, a clear message to Rubio that maybe he'll actually come in third in a state he has to win, and to Republicans that sometimes, you just have to put the past away and focus on the future.
