The arguments were:
-He could deliver Florida. This could deliver the election with a lot of Midwest states, Western states, and other large states like Pennsylvania turning away from Obama and Perry, if he is the nominee, likely delivering Texas.
-He is Hispanic. I do not like to see affirmative action candidates. All we have to do now is look at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see where that gets us. Bottom line though, he is Hispanic. This will not hurt, and again, could deliver the election by making a dent in a group of voters Obama was counting on. This would also shunt the criticism from the left that the GOP, due to immigration reform, is a bunch knuckle dragging, anti-Hispanic racists.
-He is likable. He plays well on stage. He's personable. Picture him on stage against Joe Biden in the VP debate.
-He's a Tea Party favorite. This is a big one. Not only would he draw in the Tea Party voters but he could also either prevent or limit the damage of a Ron Paul 3rd party candidacy.
So, what are your thoughts? Rubio a good choice? Do you have a better thought?
