Sen. Marco Rubios delivery of the GOP response to the State of the Union shows hes a force the Democrats must reckon with, says former White House advisor Van Jones.
The Florida Republican poses a dangerous political threat to Democrats because of his keen ability to emotionally connect with voters, Jones said.

Yup, Rubio is doing well so far. I suspect he has a very good chance of being the Republican nominee in 2016.
Seems to me that Mr. Chones is trying to do what Dems have done in the past two elections, which is PICK OUR CANDIDATE FOR US.
No, Mr. Chones, we don’t need your advice.
Is he a natural-born citizen per the constitution? Yes I know the democrats ignore this now, but later?
Marco would be better than any recent choice we've had, we aren't going to get perfect.
Per the Constitution? Yes.
Per birthers' bogus, made-up definition that not a single influential conservative voice, reputable conservative legal foundation, constitutional scholar or any court has supported? No.
His DREAM stance is dangerous to America and anyone supporting him and further emboldening the GOP because of it id an idiot.
Rubio was born in Miami, Florida. He is a natural born citizen and is eligible to be President.
I have always liked Rubio, but I also like Rand Paul esp. on fiscal issues. I always looked at Governors first for executive experience but I don’t know who’s out there? Perry disappointed me, but if he runs again, his slogan should be, “There’s 3 things I’m gonna do, but I only remember 2 of them right now”.
“No, no, no. We doan wanna run aginst DAT one!”
FReepers lining up to take the bait already.
How has letting the Dems pick our candidate worked out the last two elections? Rubio is a mole.
If people actually looked into what Rubio is proposing instead of just knee-jerk opposition, they'd find it to be a very pragmatic solution that takes immigration off the table.
This isn't 1988. Winning the white male demographic while losing everyone else just doesn't cut it anymore. Ask Mitt Romney.
Rubio’s amnesty is a big-time dealbreaker for me. I would never support him.
I think this is psy-ops, why would Jones, one of the primary party leaders of the democrats come out on TV and reveal the opposition candidates that scare them most?
I do too but nobody seems to be stepping up to the plate except possibly Rick Perry who's getting some press duking it out with Moonbeam Brown.
Fact is in this day and age, whoever wants to be competitive in 2016 needs to roll up their sleeves now to get their operations well-oiled and in place. Rubio seems to be doing just this. I suspect an exploratory committee will be soon forthcoming.
But he drinks water! How can you trust him?
Rubio draws the womans vote. Thats the main thing with him. Otherwise he is a GOP sing-a-long. Doesn’t have the guts to even defend his own parents escaping Cuba! He says he didn’t notice the date was before Castro took power....what a lame brain. Castro started attacking the Government way before he finally won. Castro’s attack on the Moncada Barracks took place on July 26, 1953, three years before his parent left for America.
What son would not know this about his parents?
Rubio es para el voto femenino.
Now Rand Paul.......
But Rand Paul has a problem using the B word.
The Banks won’t like that .....at all.
