      I've been saying this since June

      As for T-Paw/Huntsman, they add all of zero value to the ticket for Romney. T-Paw is a boring marginally unpopular form Midwestern governor, while Romney is a somewhat less boring, slightly more popular former New England governor with deep roots to the Midwest. Huntsman is a Mormon, "moderate" former Mountain West governor, while Romney is also Mormon with strong ties to the Mountain West/Mormon Belt.

      Rubio is a telegenic, die-in-the-wool hispanic conservative from a swing state, and Romney is none of these things. Three birds with one stone. I think regardless of the nominee, Rubio has to be at least on the short list.

      Florida has a lot of electoral votes; Romney needs someone who appeals to the tea partiers; and the Rs have been making noise about winning over more of the Latino vote. Rubio is Romney's trifecta.
