Jeb Bush Takes Himself Out of VP Mix, Calls for Mitt Romney-Marco Rubio Ticket

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday, took himself out of the vice presidential mix but did recommend a fellow GOP favorite from the Sunshine State for the job -- U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

From the article:

Bush, 59, the son of a president and brother of another, pushed aside any interest in running with Romney. But he has strong feelings on whom he wants Romney to pick as a running mate.

"Marco Rubio," he said of the freshman Florida GOP senator, who served as a volunteer on Bush's governor's campaign. Bush described Rubio, 40, as "dynamic, joyful, disciplined and principled."

"He is the best orator of American politics today, a good family man. He is not only a consistent conservative, but he has managed to find a way to communicate a conservative message full of hope and optimism," Bush said.
