In his own way there’s a touch of Obama about him
I like the case has been made in this clip particularly the debate extract when Rubio is dealing with the language issue. The way he handled it is reminiscent of the conference speech Obama made in 2004 which brought him to prominence for the first time.
The age factor is important given that all the potential Democratic party opponents are in their late 60s or 70s. With Rubio the candidate the gap would be similar to the Obama – McCain one in 2008.
In recent days Rubio has moved in the betting ahead of Jeb Bush to take the favourite slot.
If the prize is to go to an established politician, unlike Trump or Fiorina, then Rubio seems to be well placed.
