Nancy, pictured here in March after having lunch in Beverly Hills, was mere inches from crashing to the floor when she was caught by Marc and nearby Secret Service members. A spokesperson for the library has put fears to rest by assuring the public the nonagenarian was not injured in the fall.

This is not the first time Nancy Reagan has taken a fall. In 2008 she had to be hospitalized after a fall resulting in a fractured pelvis.

Marc Rubio is reportedly being courted as a running mate by 2012 Republican presidential hopefuls. What do you want to bet his hero skills will boost his position just a wee bit more?
