    a conservative democrat would take Scott apart.
    Many unhappy conservatives down here.   This is not NY or California or Oregon.   This is the south with a broad culture but enough good ole boys to keep Florida red  or light red for decades.  Miami and the North 4 Corridor cannot protect this state due to the Bush influence.  I would think folks would be pretty happy about Crist.
    I sure am.

    I used to see him this year ask people to call him up just to talk if they wanted to when working for some law firm.
    He actually invited conversation from peasants.  I am for Crist and would not work for a more liberal opponent because the republians would never vote that direction.
    Crist will pick up the dissatisfied mod republian vote.

      very conservative democrat. Sure, Sink's campaign was a farce but that's because the democratic party down here is a farce as a whole. The lot of them reflect the national party, which is slightly to the right of the American public. Adding Crist to the fold only moves the posts further to the right.

        Rod Smith's politics and knew him when he was state attorney so ..he is not exactly the best chair for Florida.
        In fact it is one of the worst.   Debbie Wasserman Shultz could help make it better  afterall it is her home state.

        I had rather be right of the center than in the hole with this crazy idiot we have.   Edging the state to the center is easier than climbing up from Hell.

        It was a disaster.

        I condemn Mitt Romney for political opportunism in exercising his free speech rights to criticize America's leaders during a foreign crisis. Wow, I guess I just apologized for Mitt Romney being an ass.

        Popular vote 2010 Florida Governor

        Scott:     2,619,335   
        Sink:       2,557,785   

        Margin:        61,550

        If this is your idea of wining "handily" then what do you consider President Obama's victory in Florida 2012: a landslide?
