Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio have a lot in common.

If Mitt Romney chooses Marco Rubio as his running mate, they will share a compelling family narrative that will have great appeal to voters,  particularly in the Hispanic community.

Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico and Marco Rubio’s father was born in Cuba.  Romney’s grandfather fled Mexico with five year old George in 1912 at the beginning of the Socialist Mexican Revolution.  Rubio’s parents fled Cuba in 1956 at the beginning of the Communist Cuban Revolution.  Both families gave up everything that they owned to come to America.  Both families struggled to make ends meet, overcame great odds, and achieved success.

It’s the American dream.  And Romney-Rubio is the dream ticket.
