Will Marco Rubio Be the Mitt Romney Vice President?

Pennsylvania is a swing state in the 2012 Presidential election. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh can turn the state from red to blue and back again because of their dens populations. Heavy voter turn-out from either political party are aware of this fact. Yet, there were no overflow of political aids, posters or calls from volunteers from either party. And interestingly, from a personal view, no one is really talking about the election. There were no long lines for either the Republicans or Democrats. No discussions about the issues concerning our country at present.

Today is a lovely day in Philadelphia. Perfect for voting. No rain or snow or other act of nature to stall people from voting.  The news and the cable networks note where the respective candidates are traveling. According to the cable networks, the president is traveling to states and event sites with high college student populations, a voting base significant in the 2008 election.  It is interesting, and perhaps I heard incorrectly on the news, but Romney is not in Philadelphia today, but New Hampshire. He did spend time here in Philadelphia with Senator Mark Rubio (R-Fla.) and the buzz was whether or not he was under consideration for the vice president.
