Marco the Hero!
Look at Nancy Reagan gaze into dreamy freshman Senator Marco Rubio's eyes, into the eyes of her future hero. According to L.A. Times Andrew Malcolm:
"Her cane appeared to slip on the floor.
And the frail first lady lady began to fall toward a hard landing on her right side.
Many in the crowd were still buzzing with excitement and could not see what.... was unfolding near the front. Others nearby could and there were audible gasps.
Fortunately, Rubio sensed the stumble. He braced his legs and caught the president's widow by her left arm as she swung into him.
Secret Service and other crowd members quickly rushed in to assist Mrs. Reagan to her feet and a chair. She appeared to be uninjured and after some moments, the program proceeded."
Thank you Senator Marco Rubio for being such a gentleman.
