He's the GOP's most electable candidate.

Which means they won't nominate him. Cause GOP.

Ha. But you are right. I think he is the one to be scared of. Anti-union and sure to favor traditional marriage and all of that good old conservative values stuff.

Christie still weighs as much as a baby elephant and has the bridge scandal thing fresh on people's minds, otherwise...he could be their guy. Komrade Cruz...enough said. Rubio might be on the ticket with whomever the nominee is. Paul, Carson, etc., not too worried about any of them at the moment. Although they will be fun to watch in the coming months.

Rubio, nah no way.

Keep in mind when he announced he said he would not run for Senate in 2016. So he is all in, supposedly. He does expect to be on the ticket.

He expects to be a shoo-in for Fla Governor in 2018.

You don't think Rubio could be on a ticket as a VP?

I disagree. Most electable is Rubio followed by Bush when it comes to the GOP. The democrats "Blue Wall" 18 states that have voted democrat every election since after 1988 puts the democratic candidate at 242 EC votes. That means "Blue Wall" plus winning Florida(29 EC votes) wins the election for the democrat. So the republicans have to win Florida to even have a chance of winning the election. The only republican candidates that can insure victory in Florida are Rubio and Bush.

He's a slam dunk VP. Young, spanish speaking, and from the third most populated state and the most coveted purple state.

Yeah I can't believe I just read Rubio as not being a good VP candidate. From an objective perspective, he's a gold VP candidate.

US Presidential Election 2016...because it's never too early

That said, I find nothing charismatic about him. To me, Paul and Christie are at least interesting individuals. Rubio comes off as dead boring and weirdly sanctimonious.

Christie is one of those Republicans I could consider were I living in a socially liberal blue state. There are certainly negative things about him, he's a bully and a thug, but he isn't crazy. And anyone who is going to win the GOP nomination is going to have to pander to the crazy in the GOP.

Well I think Sarah Palin proved that a charismatic GOP VP just gets in the way.

Sarah Palin is a lunatic.

Perfect example of someone looking good on paper.

Dick Cheney/Sarah Palin 2016! I think that will make people take the GOP seriously.

Christie's probably the only one I would consider trusting in a wartime scenario because, as you said, he's not crazy.
