Florida Senator and GOP rising star Marco Rubio will deliver the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address next week.

The response is a chance for Rubio to assert his brand on a national stage, a chance to show that he’s ready for prime-time – or is that primary time?

The last time a young, star-in-the-making Republican gave the opposition response to Obama’s SOTU after election was in 2009, when Louisiana Bobby Jindal gave a performance that set back his reputation by years.

So will Rubio succeed, or will he Jindal?
