Rubio heads to Aspen



UPDATE 11/29: We learn today that Rubio is not going after all, due to family reasons.

Fresh off a Disney cruise with his family, House Speaker Marco Rubio is heading this week to Aspen, Colo., for a meeting at the Aspen Institute. Rubio was named this month as a Aspen-Rodel Fellow, a group of "true rising stars" of American politics.

According the Web site, the program brings leaders together "to discuss broad issues of democratic governance and effective public service."

Among those joining Rubio: Mike Bishop, majority leader, Michigan State Senate; Rachel Kaprielian, assistant majority leader, Massachusetts House of Representatives; and Lawrence Wasden, attorney general, Idaho.
