Doing my morning cardio before work I had the chance to watch Charlie Rose interview Marco Rubio at the Counsel Of Foreign Relations. He's impressive. Smart, articulate but not glib, his responses are well reasoned and carefully constructed. His view of the world and the United States place in it is coherent and flows naturally from his upbringing and life's experience. He has the exuberance and glamour that raise frequent comparisons to Jack Kennedy. And he doesn't seen motivated by the same nativist animus that propels so many of his competitors. Nor does he appear to believe that he has a direct line to what God thinks.
He would be a formidable candidate in general election.
