Would a Latino running mate help Romney?

Washington (CNN) - At the Council on Foreign relations this week, Sen. Marco Rubio talked tough on the international hotspot of the day, Syria.

"It's time to act now. I don't want to score political points on this issue, I want to see it resolved," Rubio told Time Magazine's Rick Stengel, the event's moderator.

    Even if I were a Latino and Mitt Romney chose Marco Rubio as his running mate, I still would never vote for him. Anyone who says that $783B a year for the military is not enough would never make a good President. In fact, Mitt Romney is the antithesis of Pres. Theodore Roosevelt who fought the special interest groups of his day!

    Yes, Rubio would be a great VP pick, but only if Sarah "I quit" Palin refuses the spot again. Rubio could give Romney the inside scoop on how to deport Latinos. What a pair.

    Yes it would !
    Why not sombody with the same integrity as Romney.
    Augusto Pinochet, was a Chilean army general and dictator who assumed power in a coup d'├ętat on 11 September 1973.
    Or The Nicaraguan dictator and military leader Anastasio Somoza

    @ClemVision: "Hey, I would greatly appreciate it if they stopped slaughtering people as well (especially women and children), but not at the expense of starting a proxy war with China and Russia."

    Repubs are all about soundbites, not common sense or even an inkling of understanding when it comes to foreign relations. Remember "we'll be greeted as liberators" Cheney? That's about as good as the Repubs get when it comes to foreign policy ...
