    Unfortunately, there's a problem. While Crist promotes business interests in Florida, and thus has support of Republicans in that area, he is against the gutting of Florida's public programs, which is what the GOP pandering to the tea baggers are trying to do. So because the GOP are purifying themselves of any moderates, he doesn't sit well with the Democrats. But the Republican Party and the Democratic Party are the only viable parties that politicians can run with and get elected.

    Crist isn't failing the system - the system is failing him.

    Outside of tea partyesque disillusioned conservatives Rubio is not going to get any votes, and Crist will likely pick of quite a few votes that would have gone to Meeks as well. My bet is that Crist is now our next Senator.

    Crist will still caucus with the R's so it won't be so bad for ya if he wins
    lol yeah ok

    You just go on thinking that
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Hey Prof !! I thought that you Republicans did not call those who travel on LIPTON Lane "teabagger " ? Isn't that supposed to be some form of sexual perversion ?

    Crist originally supported the bill. It's the teachers unions that were the problem. And Crist caved to them and reversed his position.

    crist is a creep, personally

    Charlie Crist says he won’t run as an Independent; Marco Rubio says he’s not familiar with Tea Party vetting – The TV Guy – Orlando Sentinel)

    the character of the man is always central

    he's a LOSER

    in HIS OWN PARTY

    by a LANDSLIDE

    there ya go

    G.W. Bush also said that the United States shouldn't be in the habit of nation-building. He was re-elected after trying to do just that in Iraq and Afghanistan. Scott Brown supports universal health care, and he was supported by tea baggers who are against it. I guess that tells you a lot about the character of the GOP.

    What, that they're pragmatists who can elect moderates if they have to?

    That seems to be the message one would get from this post.
