Talk about the body not even being cold yet

Marco Rubio, apparently under the delusion that everyone with a Spanish surname will automatically flock to him like municipal park ducks following a six-year-old holding a bag of bread, is letting no grass grow under his feet:

Word of Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's trip to Iowa next weekend has many people who cover campaign politics buzzing.

The popular freshman senator from Florida will headline a birthday fundraiser for Terry Branstad, the Hawkeye State's GOP governor. Since Iowa holds the first contest in the caucus and primary calendar, Thursday's announcement is stirring talk of a possible bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

But is such talk premature?

"I think it's way too soon to talk about 2016 implications, beyond the obvious fact that it never hurts to have friends in Iowa. This will likely be a quick trip just for the dinner, and he doesn't have any other travel planned," a source close to the senator told CNN.

And I am Marie of Roumania.
