Say good night, Charlie
by

The biggest winner Tuesday night was probably Huckleberry, who would like to be VP, the biggest loser Florida governor Charlie Crist, who also pines for the post.

By winning four Southern states plus West By-God and nearly winning Missouri, Huck demonstrated real strength with just the kind of folks and in just the places were McCain is most problematic – the South, conservatives, evangelicals. He could add to the ticket in multiple places where Charlie would help in Florida alone. Charlie is the kind of populist flake fulltime that McCain is from time to time on various issues. So Crist doesn’t add value (please pardon the business-speak) to the ticket outside of Florida where the Huckster could. (Governor Mike might object to “Huckster,” but he shouldn’t. Some have called him Everyman — others have called him a con man. To succeed in Southern politics you have to be a bit of both.
