Hispanic population is extremely diverse.
Tony and you got -- if you want to go after the Hispanic vote.
You have to you find something for everybody.
In -- as Marco Rubio represent that if in fact Romney decides.
As a presumptive candidate he's the -- to be on the ticket I think the real attraction to Marco Rubio is he.
In bodies and personifies the American dream whether before or Hispanic or some other ethnic group.
The product of why America is such a great great countries parents we came here from.
The oppressive regime in Cuba -- for life for themselves have a son who's been able to be such a high profile and productive part of our political system.
So it's not just to Hispanics that I think rubio appeals he appeals to a whole cross section of those who really feel the American dream has become.
Input in -- by the last four years of this administration.
And the irony that I think it also.
Offers the ticket is you have Mitt Romney who I believe wrongfully but is being perceived as as this kind of yet American dream but.
He was given all these advantages he had a wealthy father he was sent that even the schools except for a here's a guy Marco Rubio who truly achieve that same American dream but from the other side of the spectrum so I think it's a very compelling ticket but.
I agree -- Dick Cheney politics should be the least.
Although it won't be the least consideration when choosing the vice presidential nominee because of the fact that this is truly the person who on day one has to be mission ready.
To assume the office how many people are really in that position.
You don't really know the job until you've done it -- Barack Obama's Bill Clinton you know it's it's it's it's a tough job so it's hard to Brasilia.
-- -- -- resume that but you do have an ability to be.
Up a bit more prepared than others.
You know -- -- I -- hero your arguments about -- actually don't think he's that compelling.
A choice because I I actually don't think he brings a good a number of Latinos to.
To the Republican ticket basically because they're going to vote for two things economy and immigration and they don't believe that the Republicans have good immigration policy.
And it's it's remains to be seen whether or not the can be trusted.
From that -- from their point from voter's point of view on on the economy so I don't think rubio actually does enough to bring Latinos to to keep them -- The number two I kind of get the sense that.
Rubio are on this ticket is what may be -- care re choosing Barack Obama would've been.
Back in 2004.
This rising star who actually -- shrines in person at the top of the ticket I don't know if Romney really wants.
-- it takes away from his messaging.
But what about Chris Christie could be -- same thing here.
-- large and in charge and he's.
Yeah he could certainly dailies -- my gov over that I know I know yeah.
But you're Perry -- him a figure that Jamie is just the section we really wanna talk about my -- -- you were very very terrified took a Carlyle and Andy I know that you think a lot of Chris Christie a lot of people do.
-- he would make news to you I'm sure I'm doing that and Romney might not but it.
Over the course of the campaign remember once what's that choice is made it's a fairly compressed cycle it's a sprint.
I think he makes more news -- Romney does did you really see.
Keep being mom on them.
Large swath of policy issues he's going to be compelled to speak and -- -- that will outshine Romney.
And we are told not well Iraq I will tell you this I I have my won my first local jobs working for Jack Kemp when he was the vice presidential knowledge he has see I told -- -- -- to Bob -- and try and at that time that was the exact concerning a Jack Kemp had been the vigorous you know ground soldier -- -- Reagan revolution.
The most articulate supply side conservative in the political debate at the time here is kind of Bob Dole older little bit more curmudgeon.
Jack can't even understood that as a vice presidential nominee you ordered the subordinate.
To the presidential candidates I don't really have a concern that any of these individuals have chosen.
Mitt Romney not because they could -- but because they would understand that it's not their role which doesn't suggest the medial -- to get them in that position.
But I do want to let -- I wouldn't say Chris Christie subordinate.
Three hours yeah I don't so I don't necessarily believe that Christie will do it as.
The -- so pretty yesterday in the -- -- -- and you need to see these guys these are not numbers who's right you know when it what I thought of Rudy running for senate against Hillary as much like.
-- appreciated that contest.
You know you can't see Rudy Giuliani operating as one of one -- live at the same time I think Rudy has a lot to offer how he certainly does Jamie but what we're saying is.
These are executive style of people who just who who would be very interesting in that kind of subordinate role but that's I actually agree.
Would you and I and I was -- my comments reflected that I don't think selecting a Hispanic.
-- selecting an African American or selecting an Asian American necessarily brains that entire.
Block to any one party I do believe it is going to be -- policy and that's where Mitt Romney has to keep discipline he has to talk about the economy away.
That affects all Americans for him to start chasing these foul balls and pandering to each individual group.
Will only bring him onto the turf that Democrats play on best he has to stick to the economy Marco Rubio could also.
