  •  538.com says Crist's best chance is as Indie. (2+ / 0-)

    Nate Silver on Fivethirtyeight.com says that Crist's best (only) chance is to run for the Senate as an Independent.  He'd create a three way race where he has an equal chance of winning.

    Crist is assured of losing GOP Senate or Governor primaries.  No mention of his pulling a Specter and becoming a Democrat. That only works when the Democratic national (Obama) and state (Rendell) party leaders are willing to sacrifice principles and Democratic future for short term gains.  That witches brew is not available to Crist in FL.

    For Democrats and independents with a concern for US national interest, defeating Rubio is the main priority. Crist running as independent and Meek withdrawing and supporting Crist would be the "best for the country" behavior...and the least likely to see behavior.
