Mel Martinez Cuts And Runs
What the hell is going on? A U.S. senator does not resign. It's one of the greatest jobs in the world. I'm not going to pretend like I know why Martinez is bailing, but I can tell you two things it's not:
1. To do a solid for Charlie Crist.
2. To spend more time with his family.
I have nothing to back this up (except for one source who heard it on some elevated grapevine), but I do wonder if a certain con man's name isn't going to pop up in this. Maybe not, but we'll see.
