First off, that is one great name.
I thought Bobby was made all along, from the first time that we saw him become Junior's go-between/gopher/apprentice. His dad (Burt Young aka Paulie from the Rocky Balboa series-great character) was admired by Tony who reffer-ed him as "the terminator" due to the fact that he whacked that many guys, and so I assumed that he'd been in the wise-guy business from the start.
In any case, it was a fast-rise to power for Bobby. Of course, the marriage was a good career move in retrospect. Seems like him and Christopher had the fastest rises to power in the Soprano family. Especially when we consider that guys like Feech, Murf, Johnny-Boy, and Richie spent many decades working for the family and never made it that far up the food chain (corporate ladder).
