Florida needs Bob Graham
read the story and call the number....

Last week, I spent three hours with the person who should be elected Florida's governor in 2006. He didn't have a clue I was thinking that. But, as I listened to his commitment to Florida and understanding of our problems, I kept saying to myself, "This is probably the only guy who could beat a Republican and help us heal from the Jeb juggernaut."

1. from an ex-Floridian
I'll back that. Florida is going down the tubes with another evildoer=bush, Graham would be the perfect answer!

2. I don't think he's eligible
Term limits - governor can only hold two consecutive four year terms.

5. REALLY????
I already miss him!!! Nelson looks to be a Roll-Over to the Right and in bed with Martinez!

I doubt he'll get back into politics again though! He appears to have a big happy extended family and I think he likes "kicking back" some!

Even though he was more conservative than I, he at least stood up for what he believed in. And his info about Iraq and Intelligence is right on!

7. Umm . . . what am I missing?
He won the governorship in 1978, was re-elected in 1982. Ran for the Senate, and won, in 1986. Is that not two consecutive four year terms?

3. Graham has other plans
He's going to teach gov't at the Kennedy School at Harvard, and then start a leadership program in Florida.

11. WOW Again!
Like Martinez is WHAT I WANT!!!! He was "hand picked" by El-Smirkle-Roy a LONG time ago! Right out of HUD. I heard THAT news more than a year ago! Rove sharpen his HATCHET and went to work.

Of course... we DID have little help from "little brother" JEB! And I presume ALL THE REST of Florida Fraud Group!!!

I hear "Bud" Chiles will be running for The Guv Office... we need to start work NOW! I KNOW Jeb is a busy busy Bee! And knows all about "hand-picking" too!

We had better watch Nelson too... he's gotten FAR TOO cozy with MEL!
