    Not nearly as scurrilous as what Bush-43 did to McCain in the 2000 South Carolina primary, your neck of the woods .

    There ya go again. What makes you think that their relationship and it's faults lay entirely at the feet of one person in that relationship alone?



    Someone who finds a failed marital relationship MOST troubling and disqualifying would (if they are consistent) find the reverse MOST qualifying as a presidential attribute. Which is what vesper actually indicated by posting a photo of Rubio's family.
    Looks like the Rubios have a good relationship, and perhaps the Clintons have their own version of one as well - though it seems questionable. Sometimes a photo is just a photo, and sometimes most of us like to celebrate family photos - because they are families with all the successes and problems families have. These are things most of us can identify with. Why are you so bitter?

    It's a closed primary--so let's see if there's a move to reregister indies .

    Re: Rubio tells donors he is running for White House

    I saw Rubio on Morning Joe, and a bit of his speech last night.
    He seems to be the most thoughtful of the GOP - saying he wouldn't immediately repeal DAPA/DACA (whatever),
    but would work to phase it out..etc.

    I normally would want a governor now after a Senator who couldn't work with Congress..
    for now at least I like him best in the GOP....

    It is most troubling when I see a woman allow herself to remain in a relationship when her spouse continually cheats on her which amounts to abusive behavior.

    I like this pic too!

    Mornin Nimby. Don't worry I know all about the boom box. I was only looking at the GOP primary and what Rubio has going with other Republicans. As noted by the Chart from Nate Silver. Iowans don't see Rubio as to Conservative. But still give him High marks.

    Carson is fill in fodder and will take votes away from others. But he wont take NH or SC. Then there is Paul and Cruz.

    So again, Rubio according to 538 is sitting close to the Sweet Spot.

    Moreover, if you check the polls for Bush in Florida recently. He isn't as well off as he should be. Rubio is at least thought of, off the top.

    Re: Rubio tells donors he is running for White House

    I must admit Rubio came off pretty well not reading from key cards like most candidates. His youth just may wend up pushing further than most expect. I am not committed to which rep. I prefer as it is way too early but after watching that young man are we really able to stomach an old, worn out cliché like Hillary? We need new blood so Bush and Clinton go away.

    Re: Rubio tells donors he is running for White House

    Unless Walker keeps tripping over his own tongue, he wins a state like Iowa where only one-third of the electorate is registered GOP, and very conservative, in that closed primary.

    Rep. King will remind voters of Rubio's Dream Act, which he's tried to walk back after getting booed in front of TEA audiences.

    Meanwhile, Walker gets a pass on his 'etch-a-sketching' on comprehensive immigration reform .
