Rubio's Slip

Marco Rubio had this hysterical Freudian slip when he was campaigning with Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania.
"I'm not talking about that process any more," Rubio told reporters in Aston, near Philadelphia, with a smile that seemed a playful reference to a forum last week, when he mistakenly said "if I do a good job as vice president" then corrected himself to say, "as a senator."
The last two losing presidential campaigns picked John Edwards and Sarah Palin as running mates. Picking a telegenic younger politician as a game changer is a sign of a desperate campaign. We now know about Edwards' and Palin's baggage. Just wait until the national media investigates Rubio's foreclosed home, David Rivera connections, and outlandiish expenses on a Republican Party of Florida credit card. What is interesting about Rubio's verbal slip is how he couldn't hide his ambition to the media. It will be interesting to see how Rubio handles being grilled about his lack of policy knowledge. The early signs aren't good.
