TOO BAD HE'S MERELY A LEGISLATOR:

A Hillary Clinton Match-Up With Marco Rubio Is a Scary Thought for Democrats (JEREMY W. PETERS, MAY 22, 2015, NY Times)

[T]he worriers include some on Mrs. Clinton's team. And even former President Bill Clinton is said to worry that Mr. Rubio could become the Republican nominee, whittle away at Mrs. Clinton's support from Hispanics and jeopardize her chances of carrying Florida's vital 29 electoral votes.

Democrats express concerns not only about whether Mr. Rubio, 43, a son of Cuban immigrants, will win over Hispanic voters, a growing and increasingly important slice of the electorate. They also worry that he would offer a sharp generational contrast to Mrs. Clinton, a fixture in American politics for nearly a quarter-century who will turn 69 before the election.

As her supporters recall, Barack Obama beat Mrs. Clinton for the nomination in the 2008 elections after drawing similar contrasts himself.
