    i'm just sick about it. Meek was a real progressive and that fact would have flown under the radar if it was just him and crazy assed Rubio.   In Florida, it would be tough for a progressive to win a statewide election. In the central and north part of the state Meek couldve played up his State Trooper credentials. In teh south, where its liberal, they know meek and they know his record. And Rubio's so nuts, that people wouldve chosen Meek because they agree more with him than they did with Rubio.

    Charlie straddles that fence. he has done some truly progressive stuff and I can name them off one after the next. And they thing about Crist is that all the stuff he does like that are very very visible. A few years back he decided to take a huge sugar plantation away from big sugar and reinstate it to everglades land. HUGE news. He also made it possible for ex-felons to automatically ahve their rights restored. BIG news. Same with the education bill and leaving polls open on November 4 2008.  

    sigh.
