I am reprinting this because I think Crist's best strategy is to run as an Independent, I don't agree with the Democratic part Daily Kos suggests, because the Democrats will be too stupid to embrace him, but I agree Crist has to switch parties as my idea -- of us switching parties -- isn't working. I can't get any of my knucklehead Democratic friends to become Pubs to try to stop Rubio in the the primary. My friends will go down in flames with their principles: "I just can't do it" they say. And, my Stop-O Marco campaign is not gaining much traction since it's wildly popular launch last week.
The Daily Kos said Feb. 24th:
"Let's game this out:
Rubio is currently the comfortable frontrunner for the GOP nomination. If he defeats Crist, he's money for the Senate. Democratic nominee Kendrick Meeks won't present much of a challenge.
But here's the deal -- Crist is still a fairly popular governor. If he jumps to the Democratic Party, that gives Rubio a free shot in the primary, but he's going to win that anyway. But rather than have an easy romp in the general, he'd have to face Crist. And the general election isn't a closed Republican election dominated by conservative activists. Independents and moderates like Crist, and Democrats will fall in line.
But by all means, DeMint should continue taunting Crist. As I've said, there are only two people who can win this seat -- Crist and Rubio, and Crist won't win it as a Republican. Given the choice of the two, our choice shouldn't be hard."
Jump ship Charlie Crist, it is your only hope and...mine too!
