    Both in the general or in a primary.  I suspect Crist wouldn't make it to the general if he stays a Republican, so I agree that he might well switch.

    I'm not over-the-moon about Crist, but he's better than, say, Ben Nelson or Blanche Lincoln, so why not?  We had a better candidate in Florida in 2004, but since she's not there, I guess Crist will do.  I'd probably prefer Crist (D) to Meek, really.

    A conservative is just a liberal who hasn't needed a second chance yet.

      prefer Kathy Castor to run.

    •  But why would he stay as gov after having been (0+ / 0-)

      so publically humliated by the FLA Rep establishment?  Seriously he'd be worse than a lame duck, he be a lame duck who had his wings clipped before he was sworn in for a second term.  Then what would he do?  Sit there looking stupid as Senator Rubio prances about on tv spouting his tea-bagger non-sense and politicos in DC proclaiming Rubio, not Crist, as the new face of the Republican party.  I just dont see Crist being willing to take that kind of a hit.
