      He was a joke.  He had no distinguished accomplishments to run on.  Nothing to make him a good statewide candidate.  His fundraising was poor.  Supposedly Bill Clinton tried to talk him into dropping out and endorsing Crist in order to stop Rubio, and Meek thought he was a better judge of the political situation than the Big Dog.  Meek was short sighted and he messed up.  We could have stopped Rubio in his tracks and slowed down his rise in national politics.  Now Rubio has a stepping stone to seek higher office.  We'd have one more Senator in our caucus now if Meek had had more common sense than ego.  I do mean Kendrick Meek.

      added an 's' to the name, not confused with any other person.

      I condemn Mitt Romney for political opportunism in exercising his free speech rights to criticize America's leaders during a foreign crisis. Wow, I guess I just apologized for Mitt Romney being an ass.
