The odds that Mitt Romney runs with Marco RubioMarco RubioRepublicans giving Univision the cold shoulder: report Week ahead: Senate panel to vote on Trump's Labor pick Senators introduce new Iran sanctions MORE for VP are
mathematically zero. None. No way. No chance. Nada. Nyet. Rubio may well
have a presidential or vice presidential future, but not in 2012. He is
not ready. He is not qualified. He is not close. I have believed this
from the beginning of the campaign, but after President Obama
outmaneuvered Mitt Romney on immigration, Romney looked confused and
befuddled and Rubio could not even be clear about whether he still
supports his own plan. Not ready for prime time. Not close.
The Etch a Sketch Romney cannot take an extreme and hardline position on immigration during the primaries, then shift to sudden moderation for the general election. There is no Hispanic whom Romney can put on the ticket who will help with his huge problem with Hispanic voters. The fault, Dear Brutus, lies with Mr. Romney, and not Mr. Rubio.
