Marco Rubio rather than Donald Trump has all the headlines today. Unfortunately, it is for all the wrong reasons. As Ross puts it so cuttingly:
Marco Rubio had taken arguably the most important debate of his career and instead of using it to cement his position as the leading alternative to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz he proved accurate Chris Christie’s recent criticisms of him as being the “boy in the bubble.”
Yet it remains to be seen if Rubio's bubble has burst altogether. Let's say for argument's sake that Rubio's debate performance is sufficient to keep him out of second place in New Hampshire. Keep in mind that Republicans will convene for another presidential debate in South Carolina in six days. Rubio will have an opportunity to redeem himself and knock Chris Christie on his ass. It will be a test of Rubio's ability to come back from adversity. I think Rubio is simply too talented not to be able to rebound.
