Who came out better after the 2012 elections: Marco Rubio or Paul Ryan?
The Wisconsin congressman is just publicly emerging from his shellshock loss as part of Mitt Romney's failed presidential campaign.
But Ryan was picked over the Florida Senator for the VP slot, which gave the House budget chairman load of publicity. And just in time, too, he has to grapple with a DC-novela partly of his own making: the "fiscal cliff."
The two will address the foundation named after another one-time Republican vice-presidential candidate, Sen. Jack Kemp. Both Rubio and Ryan have cited Kemp as an influence.
