33. Three possibilities, and a fourth certainty:

1) Rubio is lying in order to project confidence and appear presidential;

2) Rubio is staying in it because he's been privately assured that the nomination will be stolen from Trump at the convention;

3) Rubio knows the story of George Wallace in '72 and he's staying in it just in case Trump catches a bullet.

All three possibilities can be true at once, of course, and all of them are subservient to the overriding and painfully obvious fourth reason, which is now that Presidential candidates can shift campaign cash to themselves without public disclosure, Rubio is paying himself thousands and thousands of dollars every extra day that he stays in it.

That's why all of those dirtballs stayed in it too long--Bush, Christie, Carson, Fiorina. They all stayed in it until donations fell below the administrative level needed to keep banking it at a net profit. So if Rubio gets spanked tonight, he still won't drop out until he's cashed all the checks that are still in the mail--and he surely spammed Florida with donor mail all last week, so right now there are a lot of paychecks still in the mail.

Disgusting, but what else can we expect from Republicans?

Edit: Four hours later, I have proven myself to be full of shit. Can't win 'em all. Said Marco.
