Every GOP politician should be calling Rand Paul to thank him for winning the abortion issue for Republicans.

The Hillary Clinton campaign for President is very, very worried about Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

The Clinton campaign is really worried about him. They really are. Hillary gave him an advantage, but so did Obama by these relations with Cuba. So every time he said yesterday, yesterday, yesterday, past, past, past, he may as well have said ‘Clinton, Clinton Clinton, Bush, Bush, Bush.’ This was a not too subtle hit at Jeb Bush as well. I do agree it was very Clintonesque. I think he’s trying to talk about building the bridge to the 21st century that Clinton promised to do in ’96 and never quite got done. Very aspirational, very forward thinking. Very new generation. Good speech.
