McCain calls Crist: Sorry Charlie

Gov. Charlie Crist got the call he'd been waiting for just 30 minutes ago -- from John McCain. It was what he had expected: McCain had chosen another governor to be his running mate. Crist didn't ask who it was but we all now know it's Sarah Palin, first term governor of Alaska who has been in office as long as Florida's governor had.

For what it's worth, sources say, Crist was the last of the three finalists to get the "sorry" call from dear John.
