'The Republican Obama'

Marco Rubio will always have "The Hug" to tie Charlie Crist to President Obama. Now, Crist is calling Rubio "the Republican Obama."

Crist's new TV ad cites a New Republic article that labeled Rubio as such. It goes on to rehash the series of stories on Rubio's personal finance troubles.

It's a savvy commercial. Don't count Crist out just yet.
