What's the future hold for Rubio?
The Herald: "Though he is just 36 years old, (Marco Rubio's) political career will come to a halt in November when he leaves office because of term limits, and so far he has given few clues about what he will do next.
"Rubio insists he has no ''master plan'' for his future, an acknowledgment that the dynamic yet sometimes confrontational politician is boxed in until at least 2010, when he could seek statewide office. Brief rumblings that he might mount a challenge to Carlos Alvarez for Miami-Dade mayor have fallen silent.
"Instead Rubio will wait, a risky move that could take him further out of the spotlight and make it harder for him to raise money when he is no longer in a position of power. To counter that, Rubio has gotten involved in a citizens' initiative on property taxes and plans to follow the path set by former Gov. Jeb Bush, helping establish a nonprofit think tank to push his ideas."
