I disagree on one point. Sending Rubio out to all the radio talks shows was part of the "bipartsen 8" strategy. McCain and Graham mistakenly think Rubio is loved by the conservative base. This was widespread by the MSM before the Nov. election, McCain and Graham always believe what the MSM spreads. The conservative base has been cautiously sizing Rubio up. Afer the election, we said hmmm, sparkling little cuban, Rubio, couldn't even deliver the Cuban voters in his district for Romney.
