PROFESSOR BAINBRIDGE: The Problem With A Paul Ryan / Marco Rubio Ticket. “They’re practically still kids, at least in my aging eyes. And having them running the country would make me feel very, very old.”
Aw, come on now. First the good professor quotes the always wise and well thought out William Jacobson:
Bill Kristol has floated the idea of a Paul Ryan - Marco Rubio ticket in 2012:and then Bainbridge concludes that the whippersnappers are just too darn young.
Having just returned from the e21 and Manhattan Institute-sponsored Conversation with Paul Ryan (very ably conducted by Paul Gigot)--and having seen Marco Rubio speak recently as well, I'll just say this: Wouldn't it be easier just to agree now on a Ryan-Rubio ticket, and save everyone an awful lot of time, effort, and money over the next year and a half?Having seen Ryan in action the past few days, there is no doubt he would eat Obama alive in a debate, and Rubio would filet Joey Biden.
Can you imagine, as Jacobson mentions, a Ryan vs Obama or Rubio vs Biden debate? The very thought puts a giddyup in my gate and a smile in my heart. Ryan and Rubio are intelligent, purpose driven, knowledgeable, charming, and dare I say it, sexy. Yes, they are young. What of it? With that much talent age shouldn't be a consideration.
At the risk of showing my age, let me just say "Yowser!"
