Marco Rubio's vice presidential Freudian slip

News

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio insists that even if Mitt Romney offered him a spot as the GOP's No. 2 this November he would decline. "I don't want to be the vice president right now, or maybe ever. I really want to do a good job in the Senate," Rubio said Wednesday.

But in an interview with the National Journal, it seemed like the possibility of running for vice president was still on his mind:

"If in four to five years, if I do a good job as vice president—I'm sorry, as senator—I'll have the chance to do all sorts of things," he said.

Was this a Freudian slip-of-the-tongue or an honest mistake?  Either way, I'm sure that speculation about a possible Rubio run won't be quieting down now.
