Love him or hate him, chances are you're reading this blog because it says "Marco Rubio." The Florida senator is a major source of political fascination, at least according to all the media interviews he has done and our web traffic.
Considering the wall-to-wall media coverage he has received with his new book, An American Son, it's probably no surprise that it shot up from 79 on Amazon's Top 100 to the clinch the 21 spot today (it's No. 2 in political memoirs).
Yesterday's won't-they-or-will-they-vet-Rubio story concerning Mitt Romney's campaign knocked the Republican presidential candidate off message for a day, but it gave Rubio even more attention. And more is coming. Though he canceled his "Daily Show" appearance last night, he's scheduled to tape next week.
With such star- and firepower, the Washington Post's Manuel Roig-Franzia can't compete with his unauthorized bio The Rise of Marco Rubio. It has been out a little longer than Rubio's autobiography, but has yet to crack Amazon's Top 100. Or the Top 3,000 for that matter. It's 3,213 right now
