Marco Rubio, author?

Word in Miami political circles is that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is inking a book deal, and the senator's office isn't quite denying it.*** So who knows?

Chances are, Rubio's in for a good million if there's a deal in the works. But that's pure speculation based on the way the national news media, tea-party types and Republican candidates covet his endorsement or even his spot as a v.p. candidate in the coming presidential elections.

A gifted speaker, Rubio plays up his immigrant roots with morning-again-in-America rhetorical paeans about the greatness of this country. Rubio, 40, is the son of a bartender and housekeeper who worked in Las Vegas before moving to Miami around1985

Rubio already has already pushed one book, 100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future, which was a roadmap of policy ideas he planned to push as Florida House speaker in 2007-2008. The ideas were gathered at so-called "idea raisers," where lawmakers solicited opinions from the public. Rubio paid relatively little attention to the book once he got in office because he decided to concentrate on property-tax cuts.

 The book didn't pay royalties, but it paid political dividends. It enabled Rubio to travel the state and help build a grassroots network he later tapped in his improbable defeat of Gov. Charlie Crist.

***When asked if Rubio's inking/has inked a book deal, his spokesman said he does not have one.

Ok, that's past tense. Is he inking a deal/talks?

A: "He has long been interested in writing a book at some point, but there is nothing to announce for now."

Nice post !! From tea parties to the election in Massachusetts, we are witnessing the single greatest political pushback in American history.

Man you have to love politicians. Amazing how they convince people repeatedly to vote against their self interest. http://www.pennystockstrategy.com
