I know that there are a great many people who believe that with Charlie Crist’s decision to run as an independent, there is a danger that the Republican vote will be split in the general election. Perhaps that will turn out to be the case, but in many ways, I would be less surprised if Crist’s independent run split the Democratic vote. After all, consider whom Crist reaches out to, when seeking political allies:
. . . Charlie Crist, soon to be independent Senate candidate from Florida, tried to reach White House chief of staff Emanuel through intermediates. . . .
The White House refused to reciprocate Crist’s overtures, but that doesn’t change the fact that there is a big difference between Crist and Marco Rubio. After all, Rubio is not likely to try to court the Obama Administration with a rendition of “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”.
