I always enjoy my visits with U.S. Senator Marco Rubio.  I have gotten to know Sen. Rubio since his days in the Florida House of Representatives.  Knowing him and having spent time with him I knew he would not only beat Charlie Crist for the U.S. Senate, he would humiliate Crist and he did.

Rubio's story is not uncommon, but will be soon if we do not change our national direction.  He is a conservative who is well-spoken, very bright, and winsome.  That last quality, being winsome, is perhaps most important.  He will not only win the argument on any topic in any room...he will make everyone feel good about it. 

The Senator is a rare bird in today's political aviary...he is optimistic realist.  I am not sure I could carry such a mindset, but he does.

By the way, I asked him "the" question.
