There's way too much time between now and the 2016 nomination to suggest that Rand has it wrapped up, but he may have just moved himself from serious contender to front runner. Political highs like this pass with time though, and Rand's filibuster will be forgotten by most voters unless (a) the media continually reminds us which is unlikely, or (b) Rand continues to impress AND his actions continue to be reported.
Personally, if all that this leads to is a tiny change in the ongoing empire vs republic debate I'll be thrilled. In my mind the fact that Rand even had to take this stand is just another confirmation of how far off track things are.
I agree with you that the praising rhetoric of some of the GOP talking heads is the most hopeful sign.
