Bill Kristol has floated the idea of a Paul Ryan – Marco Rubio ticket in 2012:
Having just returned from the e21 and Manhattan Institute-sponsored Conversation with Paul Ryan (very ably conducted by Paul Gigot)–and having seen Marco Rubio speak recently as well, I’ll just say this: Wouldn’t it be easier just to agree now on a Ryan-Rubio ticket, and save everyone an awful lot of time, effort, and money over the next year and a half?
Having seen Ryan in action the past few days, there is no doubt he would eat Obama alive in a debate, and Rubio would filet Joey Biden.
Is Ryan the dark horse, below-the-radar candidate who could generate enthusiasm? Does he even want it?
Inform me, wise ones.
