Fridays's Buzz: Should Marco Rubio run for president?

Talk about it

Freshman U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a fast-rising star in the Republican Party, has been a media magnet lately, with his pronouncements about immigration reform, school choice – even the age of the Earth – getting lots of coverage. Rubio was given the honor of introducing GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney at this year’s Republican National Convention. Now that Romney is out of the picture, Rubio is considered a top party prospect for 2016. Should Rubio start planning a presidential bid, or should he bid his time and wait for a later opportunity? Fans of Rubio argue that he’s just what the Republican Party needs in 2016: a bright, energetic and articulate candidate who appeals to Hispanic voters, an increasingly important voting bloc. Critics say Rubio is still more show than substance, and hasn’t come close to building the resume that a party nominee needs. What do you think? Is Rubio ready to launch a White House bid for 2016? Talk about it!
