I do think the man is smart enough to steer clear of anything that looks like an effort to side step the primary voters. The anger level of several thousand Cruz & Trump voters is not something a sane man would risk.

Some of the GOP elite’s avoidance of the convention signals a fear of being tainted by any perception of high jinks. After all, his seat on the gang of 8, and it went nowhere, still hangs around Rubio’s neck & will for a long time.
