Marco Rubio wants to be president. Really wants. He’s been dreaming about running in 2016 since his GOP star took off in 2010. Also, he knows that he’ll be entirely too bald to run in 2020 as anything other than an incumbent… so this it really. It’s now or never.
Jeb, Jeb, Jeb.
A certain younger and supposedly smarter brother of a former failed president had recently made his own aspirations known. And you can be sure that this suddenly dried up a lot of home state money for poor old Rubio.
But then Mitt suddenly took all the wonderful momentum that had magically appeared when Jeb went public.
I’m wondering is Rubio didn’t see a tiny opening for him to lay some groundwork when that happened?
