That might be hard. Mitt is not exactly known for his star power. But he doesn't need to be exciting to win the White House. He needs to show voters that he has the ideas and the governing skills to pull the economy out of the deep ditch Mr. Obama's got us stuck in.
Rubio will have his day. So will future Republican all-stars like Christie, Ryan and Bobby Jindal. The GOP has a deep bench.
But Mitt's the GOP's QB now. He's got to ignore the crowd of conservatives who want him to throw the long bomb to Rubio. He's got to call his own play for VP -- and make it good but boring.
