As Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., questioned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday on Capitol Hill about the deadly raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, there was much speculation in the blogosphere that this may well be the first face-off between eventual 2016 presidential contenders.

“Were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or interagency meeting before this attack with regards to the deteriorating security situation in Libya?” Rubio asked.
