Rubio's Time Will Come

Clearly, the 14th amendment trumps common law, and the plainest reading of it is that a person born in the united states is a natural born citizen regardless of their parents, as long as they are subject to the jurisdiction therein. Under this standard, and understanding that Minor was not deciding this issue, but merely commenting on it, I think it is safe to argue that being born in the US to parents who are under the jurisdiction of the US is enough to make you a natural born citizen.

"Rubio, Rubio, Rubio."

You hear the chants all across the country. On talk shows, on cable TV, on blogs and in op-ed columns, everyone with a conservative bone in his body is urging presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney to choose the smart and dashing Marco Rubio as his vice president.

The conservative crowd's clamor for Rubio is beginning to worry me. It could backfire. For one thing, it's setting up Romney for a disaster.

If he doesn't choose Rubio -- and I would agree with that decision -- it's going to disappoint a lot of Republican voters who think Rubio is...
