“As the country changes demographically, he's an appealing candidate who has the ability to connect with audiences defining conservatism,” Steve Schmidt, a top strategist for Republican John McCain in the 2008 presidential campaign, told USA Today. “The other aspect is that Marco Rubio was born in the 1970s. When he inevitably runs for national office, he will represent a generational change.”

As Linda Feldman wrote in a recent Monitor piece, “Rubio is a young, charismatic, Hispanic conservative from a top battleground state.”

That’s precisely why Rubio is getting more attention these days than his other running mate contenders like Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio.

That’s also why his book couldn’t have been timed better – and why it’s shooting to the top of Amazon’s bestseller ranks just a day after its release (as of posting time, “An American Son” was #21 on Amazon’s bestsellers list – ironically, just ahead of “Barack Obama: The Story.")
