Marco Rubio Hones Foreign Policy Chops in Colombia

Sen. Marco Rubio’s trip to Colombia last weekend highlights his growing role as a player on U.S. foreign policy and some of the assets he might bring to Republicans’ 2012 ticket.

Along with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s recent high-profile trip to Washington, Rubio said he hoped the summit “will be the beginning of a new era of engagement, which will be very positive for the country” — particularly when it comes to energy and trade.

Those aren’t exactly the words of the fire-breathing attack dog that some GOP partisans might be looking for in their vice presidential nominee. But statesmanship in the Spanish-speaking world is valued by U.S. Latinos — something Romney might be considering.
