|Jeb Bush is 6' 3"|
|Mitt Romney is 6' 2"|
Since Marco Rubio has already kicked off his presidential bid with a trip to Iowa (he ran the same agonizingly loonnggg campaign to become Senator) it is important to answer a question that is sure to come up: Is he too short to be president?
Barack Obama is 6' 1". Marco says he is 5' 10" but I would put him at below 5' 8". There were only 6 presidents under 5' 8": James Madison, Benjamin Harrison, Martin Van Buren, John Quincy Adams, John Adams and William McKinley. All of those guys were presidents before 1900. We haven't elected a president under 6 feet since Jimmy Carter (5' 9 1/2").

|Looks like more than 4 inches to me. Expect Rubio to grow taller as his campaign progresses.|
