    Senator Rubio whatever concerns you have you should address with him in person. it isn't fair that you just pass on him after you initially recommended him without giving him an opportunity to address your concerns. He really deserves the appointment. He is an amazing, brilliant ,compassionate man, His background and his accomplishments are a testament to his character. He has the courage to make tough decisions without worrying about political fall out. His compassion isnt to be confused with weakness because his presence alone commands respect. If you are a lawyer and you come before him you know you have to be prepared. I have been practicing in both State and Federal court since 1999 and i can tell you that he would bring dignity and compliment to your appointment. Dont pass without further review.
