Hi, what are you looking for?

Third Base Politics


Go figure.

Usually I ignore blogger Patrick Ruffini. While he’s a bright guy, his constant self-promotion all over the internet has gotten on my nerves.

But this time I’ll admit, he’s pushing a pretty damn good idea.

FL Speaker of the House and current Senate candidate Marco Rubio should run for Governor.

That helps Republicans avoid a vicious primary. It gets a Republican(well, a RINO, but still far better than Specter ever was) into the Senate in Crist. And it sets up Rubio – a young, charismatic and likeable guy – to run for a slightly bigger office in 2016 at the ripe old age of 45.

Some people complain that they want a conservative in the primary against Crist. Fine. Get one. But it doesn’t have to be Rubio. If he loses, he runs the risk of becoming a non-factor far before his time.

This will give you a good idea of why he’s so popular down in Florida.
