I saw him in an interview earlier this evening.

I really like the cut of his jib. Smart and sharp — well spoken and understands what tonight means.

I am looking forward to watching him in the coming years.

It didn’t help having Rove practically be the campaign manager for Koons. I really hope people will remember that.

Yes he was against O’Donnell from the start but really is giving him way too much credit. I can’t imagine that he is that powerful to affect a campaign. I always thought he was given too much credit for President Bush winning in 2004. Is this guy really that influential????? He seems deeby to me. :)

Very good news.

I really believed Charlie was the Soros pick as an “independent” POTUS candidate attempting to split the vote in 2012 and giving Baraq a Clintonian plurality win.

Now Charlie can run for dog catcher in Miami.

FL looking good so far. Votes so slow to come in from so many states though.

I haven’t seen Michael Barone on Fox yet. I am always eager to get his take.

“Yes he was against O’Donnell from the start but really is giving him way too much credit.”

I agree that the Marxist may have won without Rove’s help, although no one can be sure. Scott Brown should have been destroyed in MA, but managed to win - then of course Rove was engineering his defeat. But had Rove come out against Brown, I’m not so sure he could have pulled it off.

Another way to look at it: Suppose Conlin Bowell had come out two weeks before the 2008 election and told the country that having Obama as prez was incredibly dangerous due to how stupid he is (regarding international relations) and that it was imperative to keep him from taking office. Had that happened, I think that Obama would have lost - my point being that relative lightweights can have a big impact when they take a bold stand. Had Rove supported O’Donnell - a yawn, who cares? But Rove out there screaming that she has no business in the Senate - even though she’s a Republican who won her primary - that does have clout.

This is excellent.

Crist has got to be one of the most odious politicians in living memory. I hope he has a miserable political life and the dogs he has to catch all have rabies. What a slimeball he is.

I have to admit, I’ve been only halfway watching fox, Facebooking, FReeping, and trying to keep an eye on a 16 week old unhousebroken puppy! LOL

Yes it is hard, watching TV and following the many political websites in addition to FR.

So far so good, it looks like.

Not sure it’s been mentioned, but it looks like those who went with Rubio for Senate voted for Scott for Governor. Both Rubio and Scott are polling at 51%.

Indeed he is! He is on the live local for me and I am getting a tingle up my leg. That is NOT sarcasm.

Please tell me this means we don't have to ever see Crist again. Unfortunately, I don't think he CAN quit politics, it's all he's ever done. Wonder what he'll go for next?

I think Key West is more his style.

I have the same feeling when I hear him - he is definitely presidential material....and I hope sooner rather than later. He is really impressive - Reaganesque.

This was a given but I just realized I should visit this thread to congratulate him anyway because he was among the first Tea Party candidates in the nation they said couldn’t win. This is extra sweet.

Rubio is the real deal - great - VP material already.

Can Charlie come out of the closet now?

Most excellent. Given this man’s know how and appeal, could easily see him being a national candidate in the future.
