MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Forget about Tim Kaine, Elizabeth Warren or Julian Castro. None of them will be Hillary Clinton’s pick for her vice presidential running mate.
The Clinton campaign has set the stage for the much-awaited announcement and the choice of venue provides the best clue thus far on who Clinton will name.
The venue will most likely be the Trump National Doral resort in Miami, site of the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. Talk about an elaborate production!
A Clinton campaign intern, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak on behalf of the campaign, confirmed that Clinton’s choice is none other than Senator Marco Rubio.
That’s right — a Republican and former GOP presidential candidate.
Many consider Clinton’s choice as brilliant. Rubio will bring with him a lot of Republican votes, especially those who have vowed not to support Trump.
Rubio’s Cuban heritage would surely lock up the Latino vote not just in Florida (a swing state) but across the country.
The Clinton campaign is hoping that a Rubio vice presidency will demonstrate to America that Hillary is willing to cross the political aisle and finally unify a divided country.
The telegenic Rubio is quite easy on the eyes, and that is considered a huge perk for the Democratic Party.
Let the games begin!
