Just when you thought the 2010 election couldn't bring any more surprises comes this: Amid all of the hullabaloo over whether former President Bill Clinton did or did not urge Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek to bow out, he's meeting him and gubernatorial nominee Alex Sink in Orlando for a rally Monday night.
Expects lots and lots of backtracking on the reports -- confirmed by Clinton's spokesman -- that he urged Meek to step aside to try to pave the way for Gov. Charlie Crist to beat Republican Marco Rubio. Now that the whole thing blew up in the Democratic party's face, perhaps Clinton's appearance can prevent any more collateral damage and actually push some more Democrats to the polls.
Clinton's appearance also puts Crist in an awkward spot since the governor was stoking the idea that the Democratic icon wanted Meek out of the way.
