Marco Rubio pauses during his rebuttal speech for a drink of bottled water.
Thirsty for attention? Or just thirsty? Sen. Marco Rubio
made headlines for all the wrong reasons Tuesday night as he delivered
the Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union address.
It was supposed to be the moment that propelled Rubio into the top tier of potential presidential candidates.

reached for a bottle of Poland Spring water and took a swig to douse a
case of dry mouth.
Marco Rubio was forced to stretch for the tiny bottle of Poland Spring.
