Marco Rubio's Wife Might Be Preparing for Role as VP's Wife
Marco Rubio's wife Jeanette has kept a relatively low profile despite her husbands growing national profile. While he's in Washington, Jeanette Rubio usually stays behind in West Miami raising the couple's four children. Though, she just gave her first extended interview in conjunction with her hubby to Politico. The timing is interesting. Senator Rubio has a book coming out, sure, but he's also considered a hot prospect to be named as Mitt Romney's running mate. Is the former Miami Dolphins cheerleader preparing for the role of Second Lady?
"I've also just never been in a position where she's had to give stump speeches or do things of that nature. It just hasn't been what we do," shetells Politico
"I think that as time went by, I would probably feel more and more comfortable with that role."
"I'm prepared for the idea that no matter what he does -- especially when there's talk of him being the VP candidate -- that (there) are things that are going to come out," she says. "And through the Senate campaign, we already went through a lot. ... That really prepared us, or at least me."
