What was Bill Clinton up to in Florida?
Interesting discussion over at BooMan’s joint about Bill Clinton’s attempts to persuade Democrat Kendrick Meek to bow out of the Florida senate race and endorse Republican-turned independent Charlie Crist.
Some speculate that Clinton got pissed when Meek backed out of the deal (if indeed one was ever struck) and leaked the story in a fit of pique. Could be.
I don’t think so, though. I think Clinton genuinely believes word of his attempt to swing the election to Crist (which is the top story down here) will be enough to persuade fence-sitters to vote for Crist and keep Rubio out.
Sometimes—even with Bill Clinton—a cigar is just a cigar.
