Florida Politics - Shaken, Not Stirred

Just for the record, I think that Charlie Crist probably is being an opportunistic/typical pol (this, I'm saying, for his dumping of the Republicans/decision to run as an independent). And, yes/from what I can also gather here, the fellow isn't exactly opposed to flip-flopping on issues, either (this, ostensibly, in an effort to strategically reposition himself). But, folks, at least Governor Crist.....IS IN THE MAINSTREAM! That, and damned if he isn't a pragmatist, too........................................................................................................Compare these traits to the far more hyperbolic/hyper-partisan crap that been coming from those two main (and, yes, might I also add decrepit) parties in Washington. Could Charlie Crist possibly be any worse? I'm telling you here, folks, if I were a Floridian, I'd be taking a good and long look at him.

Morning Joe said a while back that Charlie looks after Charlie first above all. I'd be happy just to see a reasonable moderate take office who realizes that blind adherence to any ideology is both a straight-jacket and a hangman's noose.

And if it takes someone like Crist, so be it.

Believe me, double b, I'm under absolutely no illusion about this guy. And, yes, Scarborough is probably right about him. I just think that it's probably a good thing that the people of Florida are going to be given a viable 3rd option - especially, I'm saying, if the other 2 options are Rubio and Meek.
