In This Unlikely Scenario, the GOP Nominee Should Run With Rubio

At the Florida political blog The Shark Tank, Javier Manjarres offers a wildly implausible but entertaining prediction:

In spite of assertions made to the contrary by Vice President Joe Biden, speculation continues to swirl around the possibility that President Obama will replace Biden on the 2012 Presidential ticket for someone with less of a propensity for gaffes as well as for a younger and more “moderate” candidate in order to appeal to the thousands of disenfranchised ‘Independents’ across the country.  If Obama really is intent on throwing Biden under the bus, I would not be surprised if he chooses none other than the tanned and ‘Independent’ one himself, Charlie Crist.

Quite a team: America’s first black president could pick the country’s first orange vice president.

Presuming Obama replaces Biden . . . why skip over a slew of lifelong Democrats to pick a recent party-flipper? Why pick a guy who just lost his own state by a wide margin? Why associate Obama, already known for making promises with expiration dates, with a guy who changed so many positions, so quickly, when he changed parties?
