After reading all the commentary (see here, here, and even here), the way this whole thing played out sort of strikes me as odd. Again, its not that expanding early voting wasn’t in the public good, it was just a move he made far too late in the game although according to those diaries, still seems to be gettin’ lucky. It’s amazing that we have come to expect so little from Republicans that Charlie impressed people by doing the right thing after the voting already started.
Shouldn’t we demand more from our leaders even if they are Republicans? What’s with all this supposedly Democratic support for Charlie? Do Floridians not remember him rolling over on the environment or his lackluster efforts to improve the economy?
Sorry for not joining in with the chorus – though I suspect I’m not alone and won’t be in two years.
