Florida's own Marco Rubio is now on the short-list as the Republican nominee for Vice President.
Marco is really the American Dream story. He is the son of Cuban immigrants who became the Speaker of the Florida House and now is a U.S. Senator. He's got it all going for himself: looks, intelligence and he's Hispanic.
There is a lot of controversy at the moment on whether he could hold the office of Vice President. In order to be the President you must be a natural born citizen with both parents Citizens of the United States of America at the time of your birth. His father was not yet a citizen when Marco was born.
The 12th Amendment says, “But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.”
