Unfortunately, the water is what will be remembered. Why couldn't Rubio be sitting at a table with water near him so he didn't have to make the awkward gesture. Rubio compounded that by acting almost furtively in taking the sip. He's has enough public speaking experience to know that a brief pause for water is no big deal....one doesn't have to talk non-stop. His inexperience on the big stage showed, just like Jindal's did a couple years back. We need to stage and prep our up-and-comers better, because those first national impressions matter. I know people here will trash me for focusing on style over substance, but we kid ourselves if we pretend it doesn't matter.
