Mary Ellen of the Miami Herald called it a little male bonding at the Governor’s mansion, but don’t get the wrong idea their significant others were there. Including Florida’s first fiancé who asked for a basics civics lessons from Sen. Atwater.

So now that they are back in town, lets see what they’ve done – Dinner: Check, Speeches: Check. Loosen ethics rules: Check, Budget: Punt.
