I agree


With former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.  He said that Marco Rubio should be Romney's Vice Presidential nominee.  First and most obviously, he would ensure Florida for the Republican ticket.  It is very difficult for a Democrat to win without Florida.  Secondly, unlike Romney, he would fire up the party base.  For that matter, he would fire up a lot of people--a skill Romney lacks.  He also would draw a chunk of the Latino vote.  They are most definitely not locked in the Democrat column to begin with.  Latinos are often observant and conservative Catholics, they place a strong importance on family, hate Cuban communism and are hard working.  That makes them, or at least should make them, a prime voting target for any republican candidate.
