"You represent the future, I represent the past," President Shimon Peres told Marco Rubio, the Republican Senator for Florida when the two met on Wednesday evening.

Peres noted that as a man of (almost) 90, he represented history whereas Rubio, as a young man represents the future.

Peres was unaware of Rubio's exact age, till the Senator told him: "I'm 41, but I feel 42."

Tapped as being the possible Republican nominee in the next Presidential elections, Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants to the US is visiting Israel for the second time.  The first time a little over two years ago, was a private visit with his wife, following his election to the Senate.
