All of Florida is wondering when Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio will come out and make it official. They are totally in political love, but why won't Jeb put a ring on it by endorsing Rubio over Gov. Charlie Crist in the Senate primary?
Years ago, things weren't so hush-hush. During Rubio's House Speaker swearing-in ceremony, Bush unsheathed his big, powerful, gold sword and bestowed it upon Rubio's eager hands. Seriously.
Rubio keeps that sword in his office as a quiet mark of their (political) love, but what he really wants out of Jeb is three little words that mean so much: "I endorse you."
In the mean time, Jeb and Rubio now seemingly have joint custody of the Bush brothers.
It's hard to imagine they'd be doing so without Daddy's blessing. So why won't Jeb just come out and let the world know that he'd much prefer young Marco as Florida's next senator over his successor Charlie Crist?
Charlie Crist, meanwhile, knows nothing of keeping secret urges hidden. We all remember the time he went on Oprah and jumped up and down on her couch shouting his deep affection for his lady fiancee. That guy just loves ladies, and he doesn't care who knows it.
