Little Marco lines up for another ritual humiliation

Look who thinks he can be vice president:

But it is unclear whether Mr. Rubio’s quiet campaign will work. The soft touch has perplexed Mr. Trump, who has privately wondered how much the senator wants the job, according to two people familiar with the former president’s thinking.

In effect, Mr. Rubio needs to show that he wants the job, without showing that he wants it too much.

Another risk is that anyone in Mr. Trump’s orbit is vulnerable to another round of public humiliation. For Mr. Rubio, the indignities have crept into the conversation.

Mr. Trump has told advisers that Mr. Rubio would have to move out of the state to avoid a potential hurdle: The Constitution potentially bars two residents from the same state from sharing a presidential ticket.

Mr. Rubio has lived near Miami for most of his life and is the father of three college students and a fourth in high school. Mr. Trump moved his residency to Florida in 2019, and has homes in New York and New Jersey. But he has told people that he would not change his address because voters in the state would be too upset to lose him as a resident, according to two people familiar with the conversations.

Mr. Rubio has told people that changing his residency would not be a problem, according to two people familiar with the conversations.

Given that the closest thing Trump has to a redeeming virtue is his inevitable embarassing of his most unctuous lickspittles, I assume the move here is to make Rubio move preemptively and then pick someone else anyway.
