Jeb Bush's advice for Romney: Pick Rubio!

News

Not only did former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush offer up his endorsement to Mitt Romney yesterday, he also offered the GOP presidential hopeful some friendly advice on picking a potential running mate:

Bush, 59, the son of a president and brother of another, pushed aside any interest in running with Romney. But he has strong feelings on whom he wants Romney to pick as a running mate.

"Marco Rubio," he said of the freshman Florida GOP senator, who served as a volunteer on Bush's governor's campaign. Bush described Rubio, 40, as "dynamic, joyful, disciplined and principled."

"He is the best orator of American politics today, a good family man. He is not only a consistent conservative, but he has managed to find a way to communicate a conservative message full of hope and optimism," Bush said.

It's a ringing endorsement for sure, but Sen. Rubio has repeatedly insisted in the past that he will not seek higher office in 2012.  Could there be a change of heart?
