If I were Marco Rubio, I would jump on the phone and call Ted Cruz and say this,
“How would you like to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court of the United States?”
Obviously Ted Cruz wants to be President of the United States, he’s running for that job, but surely this thought would be intriguing to him. Cruz would be a magnificent Supreme Court Justice, the position is more suited for his temperament where commitment to ideology combined with a sharp wit is rewarded, not frowned upon. And I can’t think of a better person would carry on the legacy of Justice Scalia.
Meanwhile, from a purely aesthetic standpoint, I don’t think there’s much argument that Marco Rubio is better build for the presidency as far as temperament and charisma go. Might he disappoint conservatives here and there? Sure, but I think we would be pleased with the overwhelming majority of his presidency. He would be the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan.
This gives us our best hope to defeat Donald Trump.
