An articulate astronaut

Albert Martinez, political adviser to Marco Rubio, tells The Huffington Post:

"He's willing to go into spaces that other people aren't," said Rubio political adviser Albert Martinez, mentioning the senator's two appearances on "The Daily Show."

Another venue Rubio should consider? Reddit.

In breaking down this year's winners and losers (in sports, politics, and pop culture), Grantland's Rembert Browne wrote:

Obama hopping on Reddit was possibly the coolest nerd move that's ever happened in the history of the presidency.

.... Obama's final update was "By the way, if you want to know what I think about this whole reddit experience — NOT BAD!" Just incredible.

The fact that merely hopping onto Reddit could sway votes? To use the writer's words, "just incredible."
