The buzz amplifies over Florida Senator Marco Rubio's chances of landing in the Vice-Presidential sweepstakes...and frankly, that delights me.
I have met and interviewed Marco Rubio when he was running for US Senate. And I would like to remind everyone that he was roundly dismissed by establishment Republicans.

Marco Rubio will be President one day. Let's give him a leg up this day.
