Should Charlie Crist Run for Governor Again?
We're fully aware of the journalistic rule that says if a headline ends in a question mark, the answer is "no." But humor this venture into the lands of political possibility, driven by desperate flight from the backward policies and reckless attitudes of Rick Scott, Florida's 45th governor.
Peter Schorsch, a St. Petersburg blogger, saw Crist at an event last weekend where, in his view, many supporters wanted him to run again: "Of course, Crist has always been mobbed by well-wishers, especially on his home turf in Pinellas. But there was something different about the way Crist was embraced by the crowds at the TradeWinds."
If Charlie Crist is one thing right now, it's a happily married man. The former state Senator, Commissioner of Education, Attorney General and Governor was a bachelor for much of his time in public life, but for the last three years, Charlie Crist has been a husband and step-father. And, just as it is for most any man, the wonders of family life have matured Crist for the better.
