    He's a  "former" politician for a reason.

    Always grateful to wake up alive.

      ...which is no bar to being a placeholder. In fact, it's an advantage in a placeholder candidate: Someone with enough weight and connections to get things done, but who is completely out of the picture come election time.

        There's a lot of antipathy towards Bob martinez in Florida, even among the GOP.  His great blunder was a sales tax on services that he later repealed.  His name is synonymous with incompetence down here.

        Always grateful to wake up alive.
