Rubio is ineligible. He supports amnesty. He is a first term Senator, no experience. We need to keep him in the Senate, we can't chance losing his seat. NO SENATORS FOR VP.
Bob McDonnell, popular Governor of Virgina, is the BEST and ONLY real choice for VP.
He is a CONSERVATIVE. Pro Life. Pro gun. Christian (Catholic). Pro family, has a large attractive family. Pro traditional marriage.

At a rally shortly after winner the governor's race (Washington Post, Nov. 3, 2009)
“I have made the national issues an issue in this race.”
To a CNN reporter, on how Virginia's governor race signifies national politics; his campaign attempted to nationalize the race by linking Deeds to a Democratic Congress (CNN, Oct. 25, 2009)
“Virginians will judge me on my 18-year record as a legislator and Attorney General and the specific plans I have laid out for our future not on a decades-old academic paper I wrote as a student during the Reagan era and haven't thought about in years. Like everybody, my views on many issues have changed as I have gotten older.”
In a public statement that ran in several newspapers in August, in response to the Post's story on his controversial thesis attacking feminists, homosexuals and unmarried couples he wrote as a 34-year-old student at Regent University
“For me to have my daughter over in Iraq, flying around in a Blackhawk, dodging bullets in a convoy when we were running against each other in 2005, and for my daughters to be encouraged by me to gain master's degrees for him to suggest that I somehow don't support women in the workplace is insulting.”
In response to attacks by his Democratic opponent, Creigh Deeds, on his controversial thesis (ABC News, Aug. 31, 2009)
“I'm a conservative. I've never pretended to be anything else. I believe in limited government and keeping taxes and regulation and litigation low. I believe the traditional values that have been broadly embraced by our society are good.”

I forgot, I’m from NEW YORK, not Virginia. I don’t know Bob McDonnell or anyone who does know him. I have no connection to him whatsoever except that we are fellow Christians, Conservatives, and veterans.
AND, I want to WIN this election.
