    I obviously don't live in Florida, so I don't know the background. I just know that Crist was a Republican who went independent and now Democrat.

    I wasn't very quick to embrace Arlen Specter's miraculous conversion either.

      heart already.

      Someone who believes in man-made climate change isn't exactly a good fit with the Republican party.

        But it's hard not to be a little cautious, all things considered.

        That said, I'll take him over Rick Scott, regardless.

          Remember those?

          When he was Governor, he was a Republican and he wasn't perfect but he was sane.

          Compared to Skelator, he'd be a welcome relief.
