Republicans want Rubio at the top of the ticket, not playing 2nd fiddle to Romney.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?

A band of angels coming after me,

Too bad Florida has a gubernatorial appointment for Senate vacancies: http://www.ncsl.org/legislatures-elections/elections/vacancies-in-the-united-states-senate.aspx

Quote
In the following 36 states, the governor makes an appointment to fill a U.S. Senate vacancy, and the appointee serves until the next regularly-scheduled, statewide general election.  The person elected at that next regularly-held general election serves for the remainder of the unexpired term, if any.  If the term was set to expire at that general election, the person elected serves a full six-year term.

If I'm reading things right, picking Rubio for VP would trigger an election for his senate seat in November 2012 right?

I don't think Florida has a resign-to-run law, or at least not one that applies to federal offices.

All the pollsters seem to have this election closer nationally than their state-level results imply.

I'm fairly certain that anyone running for federal office - from any state - is exempt from any state's resign-to-run laws.

63% of Democrats are excited; 53% of Republicans are.  The likely voter model should be R+x because...

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

Life is not fair.

No, because Rubio wouldn't resign his senate seat unless he's actually elected VP.  If Romney/Rubio wins, then Rubio resigns his senate seat in December or January before being sworn in as VP on Jan. 20.  Scott picks a replacement who serves until Nov. 2014, when the seat is put up for election for someone to serve out the remaining two years of the term for that seat.
