Marco Rubio is not being vetted to be Mitt Romney's VP. Or so "knowledgeable Republican" sources tell ABC News' Jonathan Karl. They're apparently basing their conclusion on the fact that two months into Beth Myers' reign as head of Romney's search committee, Rubio still has not been asked to hand over financial documents or fill out questionnaires by Team Romney—steps that come standard as part of the vetting process.

Of course, Karl notes that Rubio still could be asked for those things, and implies, as many have, that the Romney camp would be a fool not to do so. After all, the Florida senator is "young, charismatic, and wildly popular with conservatives" and could give Romney a leg up in Florida and among Hispanics. No comment from Rubio or Romney.
