I don't know who'll be the Republican nominee for President, but let me predict the running mate--Marco Rubio. They'd have to be nuts not to choose him.

He's a young, attractive candidate who seems destined for the national game.  His politics are popular with the conservative base but probably won't be too scary for independents.  No one, as far as I know, is questioning his competence or intelligence.  And he's popular in Florida, a state the Republicans need to win.

Above all, he'll help in the outreach to Latinos.  It's very possible the 2012 election will be decided by this group, and if Rubio can bring just a small percentage over to the GOP, it could make the difference.

Maybe the bigger question is will he accept.

If only they had followed your advice, LAGuy. But they didn't, and now Rubio is toast, too. At least he'll be able to re-register as a Democrat. The rest of us will be waiting in health care lagers.

Serious question, who do you suppose you might have supported in 1979/1980? Presumably not Ben Fernandez. A different time.

I think Rubio still has a strong future. Certainly a potential running mate in 2016, he could endear himself to the resurgent Republican establishment over the next year, and offer an alternative to Ted Cruz.

Heck, DG, I don't think there's any doubt about that, is there? Rubio is the establishment now.
