McCain’s Crist Figure
by

The scariest thing about the big McCain win in Florida is all the prattling on about how important Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s endorsement was. The endorsement may have been important, and McCain may feel beholden to Crist. Let’s hope McCain’s gratitude and his desire to ensure that he wins Florida’s 27 electoral votes in November won’t lead McCain to give us a McCain/Crist ticket should McCain become the nominee. Crist is a liberal Republican who caters to environmentalists, including the global warming hysterics, who McCain is already far too solicitous of. But for all his flakiness, Crist is still popular in Florida. And his desire to be on a national ticket is one of the least well-kept secrets in Florida. We don’t need two Republicans in the White House who think baby’s breath is a pollutant.
