Florida's Republican Senator is among a handful of names being tossed around as a potential running mate to GOP Presidential front-runner Mitt Romney.
Marco Rubio has said for months that he has no intention of seeking the Republican nomination for Vice President and has also said publicly that he does not wan the job.
That was until last week, when he made what some could characterize as a "Freudian slip." During an interview with the National Journal, Rubio misspoke and set off a fury of speculation.
"Five, six, seven years from now, if I do a good job as Vice President -- I'm sorry, as Senator," said Rubio. Rubio's flub was met with raucous laughter from the audience. He laughed along with the crowd.
But some are now questioning if the 40-year-old freshman Senator hasn't had a change of heart.
Rubio appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" and appeared to back track from his previous stance. He said that he no longer wants to discuss Romney's search for a V.P.
Rubio's attempt at avoiding the issue is an about face from his previous position that he is not interested.
Other potential running mates for Romney include former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and south Florida Congressman Alan West, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
