Democrats Fear Hillary Rubio Matchup

May 22, 2015

This shouldn’t be surprising. Marco Rubio is younger and fresher than Hillary. He also carries the historic first quality that Democrats think they own. Oh, and also…Florida.

The New York Times reported…

Prospect of Hillary Clinton-Marco Rubio Matchup Unnerves Democrats

They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy.

An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”

What is so unnerving to them at this early phase of the 2016 presidential campaign still seems, at worst, a distant danger: the prospect of a head-to-head general-election contest between Mr. Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

On a related note, Marco Rubio has a new supporter. Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars is a big fan.

I hate most reality TV but I’ve always liked Pawn Stars and Harrison.
