Crist Crossed

Win or lose, we owe upstart Florida Republican Senatorial candidate Marco Rubio a huge debt of gratitude. If it achieves nothing else, his candidacy will have served to reveal what Florida voters always suspected: Governor Charlie Crist is no conservative, in fact, he's no Republican either. Had not the pressures of the campaign made this apparent now, the klieg lights of Washington most certainly would have later.

However, one very troubling aspect of this campaign remains, that is, the early and sustained support for Crist by far too many in the national Republican leadership. How could they have been so blind to that which to the average Sunshine State voter was so obvious? This does not bode well for the GOP.
