Parade Magazine offers a behind-the-scenes look at U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., at home with his family.
As described, the “rising star of the Republican Party” and his wife, Jeannette juggle four children, a commuter marriage, and possible White House dreams.
Here are a few excerpts of the exclusive interview below:
On the idea that he is the GOP’s Great Hispanic Hope:
“I don’t think you can nominate someone with a last name that ends in a vowel and expect that all of a sudden Hispanics will flock to them.”
On his infamous sip of water during his response to the State of the Union address:
“In hindsight, it’s one of the things I laugh about.”
On whether he will run for President in 2016:
“At some point late next year I’ll sit down with my increasingly opinionated children and my wife and we’ll have the conversation: ‘What do I want to do?’”
On his view of the American dream:
“I do believe that the essence of the American dream is a vibrant middle class and upward mobility, the ability not just to do better yourself but to give your kids the chance to do everything you could not do.”
