A commenter points us to this Intrade betting market chance showing Marco Rubio`s probability of being the Republican Veep spiking last week, before falling off a little bit. Today, Rubio endorsed Romney. Rubio is at 33% and nobody else is above 10%. I`m guessing that is somewhat due to punters hypothesizing in complicated fashions about the Trayvon thingie involving a White Hispanic in Florida.
Helluva a way to pick a potential President ...
Admittedly, I haven`t paid much attention to Rubio, but doesn`t he have Good-Looking Local Small-Timer written all over him? Not that there`s anything wrong with that. The guy is only 40-years-old and doesn`t particularly appear to be a quick learner, either.
I realize the neocons and the Tea Partiers both like him, but still ... If he was the exact same guy, but just had an Italian rather than Spanish surname, I`d think he`d be getting talked up as a potential Lt. Governor, not as Vice-President heir apparent.
Is this the best we can do?
