While I'm not a fan of Crist's and I agree with Patrick's assesment of Crist's Senate run, said Senate run, unfortunately, puts us in a bind. There's no way we can go after Crist without alienating a substantial number of independants. At the same time Rubio, at least on Paper, appears to be a dream candidate who has the potential to join Jim DeMint and Tom Coburn among our truly fabulous Senators.
Thus, I make the following proposal: Let's clear the field for Crist this cycle and have Rubio keep his powder dry. Rubio then gets everyone's support to go after Bill Nelson in 2012.
I hope this helps.
