Fact of a segment tonight who will be Mitt Romney's vice presidential choice -- continues to swirl around senator Marco Rubio from Florida.
Who's on the road would -- Newsweek but who continues say he does not want the job however Charles Krauthammer says he may not have the choice.
-- I think he's the obvious choice.
And if he says he doesn't want the office he'll find a horse's head into bed it's.
The next day he will accept little bit.
-- -- to take no for an answer and we have ways we Republicans.
-- that sounds -- ominous there mr.
Krauthammer joins us now from Washington.
Little a little like Harvey Keitel in that clip you know I have known through new ways today.
But you really believe that you said that on this program couple weeks ago even last week that -- if if it comes down to crunch time rubio is gonna fold and and do with the Republicans wanted to.
-- I think he well although I have to say that.
That was offers somewhat tongue in -- you think sometimes you say stuff like this he need to have a Chiron themselves title on the air that since irony alert about.
Tell me about it I said you shawls two.
Robert Reich did I call in the Communist Lou Dobbs and -- both laughing and on the Huffington Post there it is.
But erratic golf writer Tom and in the look -- actually writes a column about it right he's so indignant you're absolutely right everyone knew you are making a joke what you -- me.
They really yep -- and the -- though there's a series -- I think there are two kinds of vice presidential possible candidates.
-- established guy who's been around.
You take a Mitch Daniels he's a successful governor he was head of the Office of Management and Budget he's had a great -- the career he doesn't need to vice presidency.
In fact it's really for him -- step down.
Vice president -- is the second worst job in the world after the prince of Wales say he would say no and that would be it.
But then the other kind of -- -- up and comer.
A guy like a rubio may be a Paul Ryan you look at Nixon he was appointed by Eisenhower when he was a young senator in 1950.
And he went on to be on a national -- five in the next six.
Psycho he was a dominant political figures it's hard to say no if you of the up and comer and it's all started to resisted pressure you'd get from the party.
That would say look you've got -- a future we want you to be.
A party man and do it -- I am always ruby -- gonna get around a flip flop early show Romney already has if he isn't sitting in Seoul adamant that he doesn't want and he was adamant on this program.
Adam and other places how do you get around.
This is what happens every time have you ever heard a guy who's been.
The rumored to be -- -- of vice presidential candidate embrace it before -- his support.
They always say I love the job under and I only care about what he said flat out I'll tell I'm not experienced enough here on a factor -- -- reveal well.
Are you gotta say is I looked at what Obama did it was his lack of experience and he got elected anyway.
Look -- there are ways around as you can always say.
Party actually did do it wanted to crack and look it's not.
You could write it it's not hard to do if you want to do is sort of flip flop -- would give me your way I did one thing very clear you united suggesting that Lugo brought CB sent.
Two visit Marco Rubio and only found -- -- -- absolutely necessary -- That was put up to CNN poll of republic -- choices for vice president.
And here they are Condoleezza Rice 26%.
Rick Santorum 21 Chris Christie and rubio tied at fourteen and Paul Ryan and eight.
Now I don't believe doctor rice wants the job and Santorum I think would take it you say.
Well the ranking that -- -- is entirely reflection.
It's that people know Condoleezza Rice is not that many you know -- right.
Some -- it means very much I think she would be adamant in saying now and she's one of the veterans who would say.
You know I don't have to do it there's no reason and the other thing is.
They would be a negative feeling negative is very obvious she brings in the bush years there's still the overhanging the bush years she was involved in the Iraq War why would.
Romney who's a candidate -- tainted by any of that.
Wanna have that as part of the -- he wants to erase that applies those -- what -- who would otherwise be very strong candidates former governor of Florida Jeb Bush what about -- is his last name that's his only problem whether -- -- -- the number one candidate.
Santorum I think not I think the that degree to which he went negative was Romney.
Talk about a -- offered to go I mean after that things all the Democrats would have to do is to show some of the ads he -- Against Romney or some of the things he said in the dating and Romney I'm not sure you do you come back.
From that kind of negativity I don't think that's possible and the other thing -- sent -- received gratuitously.
Raises the issue of women contraception all that.
Which I think it is unnecessary fear Romney running on economics I gotta -- about running a -- and Paul Ryan's got a shot -- -- -- I think it.
I personally I mean these are leaving can't exactly be the leading candidate hi John is not -- to rubio thank you.
