Pros: All a things that Rubio was ostensible to move to a presidential race, he could still bring: youth. Charisma. Hispanic roots and foreign-policy experience, both of that Trump badly needs.

Cons: Rubio strike Trump tough during a race, and he seems to be flattering burnt out on campaigning and politics in general.
