Matt Lewis makes the case that he should run for president in 2012. I get all of Lewis’ arguments — that Rubio is a fresh face, a conservative rising star, an attractive Hispanic candidate, someone no more inexperienced than Barack Obama in 2008 — but I think the right needs to get over this conservative flavor of the month mentality. We’ve seen it with Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin, Scott Brown, and others. Like Rubio, they all have much to recommend them. But let’s let them actually build serious track records of accomplishment before we promote them. And in Rubio’s case, let’s at least let him win his Senate race first.
