Agreed. He'd be the most logical choice. Only problem is it would be tough to pull Marco off the bench.

Otherwise, Christie would be the 2nd most logical choice.

Most illogical choice Sarah Palin. She's wasted goods.

It's important to keep in mind though about Rubio that just because he might increase the Cuban-American vote in Florida does not mean he would automatically increase the Hispanic vote in states such as New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado. On election day, there really are two Hispanic communities.

Obama won a huge portion of the African American vote in 2008, he was a first generation American, and the arguement could have made back then.

Bob McDonnell seems like a good choice since he cannot run for reelection at the end of his current term as Governor of Virginia. Chris Christie needs to stay and fix New Jersey.
