Tag Archives: GOP nomination


While Marco Rubio’s polish is on display and his temporary “bump” in opinion-polls levitates I continue to question, some 15 months before the GOP Convention, why the rush? Why the risk of inviting public-fatigue? Why, in a potential field of 20-plus, would a candidate preempt the coming flood?

I’ve never been a fan of active officeholders, specifically Senators & Congressmen/women, running for office. I continue to hold to the belief that Governors, or better yet, non-politicos are the best candidates for the highest office. Where Rubio is concerned, he thinks the Florida-strategy is to run a rabbit with hopes the hounds are kept occupied to a point of fatigue.
