Florida Senator Marco Rubio appeared on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday and was asked if he would accept a nomination for Vice President. Jeb Bush, Rubio's mentor, has said he hopes Romney will choose Rubio as his Vice President. When asked by CNN's Cindy Crowley, Rubio laughed it off and said, "that's very nice of Jeb and I hope he'll say yes if future President Romney asks him." He later declined to say whether he would accept the nomination if asked. He said he wanted to respect Romney's decision making process “Up to now it's all been theoretical, we have a nominee now, and our nominee, Mitt Romney, the leader of the Republican Party, has a vice presidential process in place,” Rubio said. "And I think from this point moving forward, I think it'd be wise for all Republicans to kind of respect that process, myself included, and say moving forward, we're going to let his process play itself out."
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels appeared on Fox News Sunday and said he doesn't expect Mitt Romney to ask him to be his Vice President. "We haven't had the conversation, and I don't expect to have it... This is a hypothetical question that will probably stay that way." Daniels went so far as to say that if Romney did tap him to be his VP, he would demand he reconsider. "You will remember what William F. Buckley said when he ran for mayor of New York and was asked what he would do if he won. He said he would 'demand a recount.,' Rubio said. "I think I would demand reconsideration and send Mr. Romney a list of people I think could suit better."
