Like Larry, I'm glad that Marco Rubio will be seeking the Republican Party nomination for the White House.
Rubio's entry into the GOP field vastly improves it for he stands head and shoulders above Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. If Cruz and Paul are the sizzle then Rubio is the steak. When I hear Cruz and Paul, they speak as if they are in love with the sound of their own voice. Frankly, we've already had six years of that and we don't need anymore of it. When I hear Rubio speak, I hear a man who is serious, sober and yet optimistic. Rubio is deliberate, thoughtful and offers viable alternatives such as his tax reform plan with fellow Senator Mike Lee. He has also been an eloquent spokesperson on foreign affairs especially on Iran and Cuba. Given Rubio's Cuban heritage and the Obama Administration's efforts to legitimize Cuba under Castro we can expect to hear a great more about this from him. When we also consider Paul's support for the Obama Administration's efforts in Cuba, sparks will surely fly between them on this subject during the GOP debates.
