You heard it here first. He will be the GOP VP nominee for 2012. He can run with a Tea Partier or a moderate presidential candidate with authenticity. He is Hispanic and will deliver Florida, absent a landslide. He is a bright guy, telegenic and well spoken. Though his resume is thin, no more so than President Obama's when he ran at the top of the ticket.
This will position Rubio well for a run at the top spot in 2016, provided the party doesn't spectacularly crash and burn in 2012. Should they take an ugly loss, Jon Huntsman will be very viable next time around, much as Nixon was following Goldwater.
