In my lifetime, Florida, with the exception of Claude Kirk, has been blessed with good governors, some outstanding, both Democrat and Republican.
Believing that, I could only have hoped that the Democrats could have persuaded Alex Sink to make another run at the office. Likewise, I would have liked to have seen Bill McCollum give it another shot. Didn't happen, either way.
So, we the public are faced with a choice of Rick "He has a fan, and I don't!" Scott and Charlie "I love Barack Obama!" Crist!
Could be worse, I suppose. Maybe if it was between Jerry Brown and Jesse Ventura?
Never miss a local story.
I will hold my nose and vote for the least distasteful.
