The worst week in Washington? Kendrick Meek

From the Washington Post: "Woe is Meek. Rep. Kendrick Meek, that is - the Miami area Democrat who found himself in the middle of a media maelstrom late last week when a report surfaced that former president Bill Clinton had urged him to end his Senate bid in favor of Republican-turned-independent Gov. Charlie Crist...

In a last-ditch attempt to save the race for the Democrats (Crist has said he will caucus with the party if he wins), Clinton intervened, telling Meek that he could be a kingmaker if he got behind Crist, even this late in the game. According to Politico's Ben Smith, Meek agreed (twice) to get out before (twice) rethinking that decision.

"Or not. Meek insisted that 'there was never a deal,' conceding only that he and Clinton - a longtime supporter - had discussed the swirling reports that he might leave the race. Um, okay.

"The practical political effect of the Clinton contretemps is simple: Meek, already struggling badly for any traction in the race (polling suggests that his support runs in the high teens) looks hapless and hopeless at a time when voters want the exact opposite."

CRIST IS FLORIDA'S BEST HOPE- HE HAS ALWAYS PUT THE PEOPLE FIRST - HE WILL ALWAYS PUT THE INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE BEFORE HIS OWN..

Are you smoking crack? Charlie Crist bilked the Republican Party for years through his do-boy Jim Greer. Crist is a crook. But, you were smart to qualify your statement: Crist has not been CAUGHT. Yet.

This week he loses the election. Next year he gets indicted.

does not speak well for the democratic party when they are willing to eat one of their own just to try to stop the republican opponent. Christ will say or do anything to get elected yet the democrats perfer him to one of their own?

Clowns to the left;Jokers to the right

It is time for the rational & responsible center to unite behind Governor Crist to stop the extreme far right Rubio.
