Marco Rubio: The GOP's "Great Right Hope"?

Chip Litherland for The New York Times

From today's Times (link below):
“He’s our Cuban Barack Obama,”
said Alex Lacayo, 36, a campaign volunteer for
Senator-elect Marco Rubio.
“He gives us hope.”

Ernesto at Penultimos Dias has posted this series of interesting links to reactions and analysis on the election of Cuban-American (hijo orgulloso de exiliados cubanos) Marco Rubio.  The plot thickens...

Notimex: El senador electo Marco Rubio dice que fortalecerá línea dura contra Cuba.

PD: Rui Ferreira, en El Mundo, sobre Rubio.

PD2: La interpretación de Rubio de las relaciones Cuba-EE UU puede verse en esta intervención (video), del año pasado.

PD3: Damien Cave en The New York Times, sobre “la gran esperanza conservadora”.

Rules to blog by:
1. More light than heat; More argument than attack.
2. How to fight fair: If you must attack, fine - but attack others' (or my) arguments, not persons, families, or waistlines.
3. Show me the money - back up your statements with reasons and examples, not innuendo and character assassinations.
4. Be respectful, even (especially) of those with whom you disagree.
5. And the golden rule: Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.
