Now or Never?

by Jay Nordlinger

The Democrats seem especially determined to beat Marco Rubio, the Republican Senate nominee down in Florida. They have to beat him now: otherwise he could be president. You sense that they sense that. I’m reminded of what they did to Miguel Estrada, in 2001. Estrada was the brilliant and inspiring young attorney whom George W. Bush nominated for the D.C. Court of Appeals. Many said that he could be the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice. Democrats had to kill him at the appeals level: for he would be more difficult to block at the higher level. And kill him they did. Schumer & Co. accomplished that. And it was one of the most sickening political displays of the last decade.

May Marco fare better than Miguel — and find a prominent place for him in the Rubio administration.
