Today ends week eighty-five of running against Obama.  I ran 21.7 miles this week, averaging 3.1 miles per day.

Here is something to keep your eye on.  As the election gets closer and the time arrives for Romney to pick his Veep, it will be interesting to see if he chooses Marco Rubio.  Rubio is a top candidate for the job and he would bring a strong Hispanic vote to the Republican party, but, according to our Constitution, he is by definition unqualified.  Small hurdles like this do not usually stop Washington, though.

Marco Rubio 's parents, Mario and Oriales Rubio did not become naturalized American citizens until four years after Marco Rubio was born.  President and Vice President are the only two offices in America that require an elected official's parents to both be legal U.S. citizens at the time of that elected official's birth.  

If Romney were to pick Rubio it would be yet another section of our Constitution shredded to pieces, but it would also be a brilliant move in this political chess match.  Could Democrats conceive a way to call out Rubio on eligibility regarding his parents' citizenship while supporting a president like Barack Obama who clearly has some eligibility controversies of his own?

247.2 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day230.
