    Allen West not running for FL-18; eyes set "on something far greater".

    Allen West says he’s not running for House seat again in 2014 | Post on Politics

    "So if all you want to know is if I am running for Congressional district 18, the answer is no. My sights and objectives, political and otherwise, are focused on something far greater."
    Oh please, please run for President. The overwhelming joy I'd feel at seeing you get crushed like an insect in the primaries would more than make up for what promises to otherwise be a dull season.

    EDIT: this is officially my 'l33t' post.

    Governor of Florida?

    My guess is a SuperPAC and a Fox News gig.

    This is the most likely outcome.

    That would make sense. Scott is incredibly unpopular, even among Republicans, and I would guess that he would lose in a primary against Allen West.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Yep, the Herman Cain and Michelle Bachman slots on the Republican Primary Circus train are available. Keyes seems pretty qualified to assume the role of either (or both).
