A signal that Rubio is close to launching — There's nothing like a signature hire to quiet those who think you might blink and skip the fight. At issue is Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who remains a single-digit blip in Republican polls. So weak have his early poll showings been that many GOPers to this day say they would not be shocked if he decided not to move from exploratory candidate to official candidate.

Kasich's New Hampshire backers — The official White House line will be something like this: The Israeli people are making their choice, the United States admires their vibrant democracy and looks forward to a close friendship and strategic partnership with the next Israeli government no matter who wins.

Hillary Clinton's email scandal is exactly what you can expect from her presidential campaign — Outside its Washington, D.C. headquarters is "The Future," a 1935 Robert Aitken sculpture of a woman seated, holding an open book, over the inscription, "What is Past is Prologue." It is a classic line from Shakespeare's " The Tempest" -- and the Golden Rule for any Clinton watcher. Secrecy. Shielding documents.

A CPAC history lesson: How Rand Paul could be like Ronald Reagan — Rand Paul won his third consecutive CPAC presidential straw poll this weekend, and most political journalists yawned -- and understandably so. There have been 20 previous CPAC straw polls, and only in four of those cases has the winner ended up as the Republican presidential nominee.

Christie plans a comeback -- and a new low for Obama and Netanyahu? — It's no secret the White House is miffed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted an invitation to address Congress and make his case about the Iranian nuclear negotiations. Less clear, though, is how the White House will react -- or not -- during the Prime Minister's stay in Washington next month.

Inside Politics with John King, Sundays 8:30am ET — Anchored by CNN Chief National Correspondent John King, 'Inside Politics' features the top political stories sourced by the best reporters.

Camp Clinton super PAC detente -- and a Huntsman 2016 run? — Mike Lee was proof in 2010 that the tea party movement was growing from protest movement to political force. Lee stunned the GOP establishment by wresting the Republican nomination for a Senate seat in Utah from longtime incumbent Sen. Robert Bennett, and from that moment on has been a national tea party star.

A big change for the GOP 2016 hopefuls at CPAC — The cast changes, somewhat, at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, but for years the format has been the same: back-to-back-to-back-to-back speeches by politicians and activists. But this year will be different, and perhaps include some interesting interaction involving 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls.

Jeb Bush & Rand Paul's post-Romney moves — With Mitt Romney now officially out of the 2016 GOP nomination chase, New Hampshire becomes a more wide-open race, and the Jeb Bush camp is hoping to make fast inroads. Jonathan Martin of The New York Times notes with a crowded field, Iowa's vote likely will be splintered and the state is known for its strong evangelical base.

Biden, Rubio and Palin's 2016 plans — Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida skipped the big weekend GOP gathering in Iowa, and some believe Jeb Bush's presumed candidacy makes it hard for Rubio to find his 2016 footing. But Jonathan Martin of The New York Times shared reporting on how Rubio is still very interested in running, and hopeful that perhaps the interest from Mitt Romney offers him a new place in the growing GOP field.
