Paul Gigot has a little something in the Wall Street Journal this morning about Marco Rubio as a potential VP contender. Whoever wins the nomination would be a fool not to consider him. In fact, I'll go that one better.
I think Mitt Romney should offer him the job now, and tell him that it won't be offered again. Tell him that he wants to campaign differently; that he doesn't want to wait until the convention to announce his choice--he wants to spend the next 8 months using Rubio's star power to build the power of the ticket, that he wants Rubio's sharp mind and great public image out there on the stump day in and day out reminding people who it is they should vote for.
After all, why wait until late August? Why should Republican voters be deprived of the knowledge of just how smart a team builder Mitt Romney is? Romney's got a tall order in defeating President Obama, and he'll need to be innovative.
This fits that bill.
