Similar to Obama- Rubio is NOT ELLIGIBLE to be Vice President. His parents were not US citizens. this is probably parto f the reason republicans have avoided taking on Obama for his lack of "natural born citizenship". They WANT to be able to vote for Rubio some day.

Not true. Rubio was born in the USA. That makes him a citizen from birth.

A child, born on US soil, IS a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, no matter the status of his or her parents. For the same reason Obama is now president! The "birther" movement doesn't question Obama's parentage (one a citizen, the other, not) they claim that he wasn't born on US soil, which would make him ineligible.........

Read here and learn the meaning of "Natural Born Citizen" before everyone in America who could type online started "interpreting" the words to reflect whatever they want them to mean....
Editors' note: a version of this column originally appeared at the Daily Beast.

As Mitt Romney ponders the most fateful decision of his presidential campaign, he must move decisively to break a dysfunctional habit that’s afflicted his party for a half century. Since the end of the Eisenhower era, Republican presidential candidates have compiled a far more troubled record than their Democratic counterparts when it comes to selecting effective running mates. To overcome that pattern, the Romney team should review the most successful and most embarrassing vice-presidential nominees in recent political history.

Any list of clumsy, ill-advised GOP selections...
