    forget him.  He won't ever seek any office above NJ Governor.

    Rubio is the equivalent of the old Token Negro joke.  The token black guy in a movie who gets killed off in the first 5 minutes before his friends and family even got in their seats to enjoy his role in a movie (Jurassic Park for example).  We used to joke about the Token Negro and looked for it in entertainment.  TV, movies, etc.  Every trendy show usually had one African American person cast who was often the butt of jokes or the comic relief.  Sometimes racial stereotypes were used.  

    Well nowadays the Token Negro has been replaced by the Token Latino/Latina.  That's what Rubio is.  He's the Token Latino for the GOP.  The one guy they can hold up and point to every time a charge of racism is flung their way.  " How dare you call me a racist, I have a Latino friend, his name is Marco Rubio."  Every time an issue affecting the Hispanic communities comes up you can be sure Marco Rubio will be shoved out onto center stage to make their case for them.  To show us that hey they're not racists and how dare we criticize their policies and being racially motivated.  After all if the Token Latino doesn't object to it why should we?
