Rubio's in

Powerline has high hopes for Marco Rubio's run for the Republican nomination.
Importantly, Rubio portrayed not just Hillary Clinton, but liberalism itself as superannuated, over the hill and out of ammo. This is, I think, more significant than his brief reference to Mrs. Clinton. Liberalism is indeed vulnerable to that charge: the leadership of the Democratic Party is uniformly geriatric, and is there any idea so thoroughly discredited, so dismally left over from the 19th century, as socialism? Of course, to persuade voters Rubio will have to show that he has ideas that are newer and better. But that is an eminently achievable task, given the comprehensive failures of the Obama years.
