Why was the FLORIDA gubernatorial debate a NATIONAL news story?
This is getting nuts. Although Matthew's show sucks anyway, what is the purpose of broadcast it nationwide? Are we all supposed to rush down to Florida and register to vote there? I don't understand. Someone help me.

4. Davis hit it out of the park.
Tonight was his best performance yet. I see the rice tightening over the next few days.

Libertarian Linn got a court order to parttake 10 min before airing. So it was 2 to 1, since Linn was mostly on the side of Dems in issues. Crist was trying to dodge questions like" How much money did you get from the Insurance lobby" etc!! They were asked to rate the Prez. Linn and Davis gave him an "F" and Crist a "B"!!He got buldozed on every issue! Davis seemed confident had all the right answers!!

3. Actually for once Matthews did a good job. Crist (R) got slammed!
with the help of the Libertarian Linn who got a court order 10 min before airing. Our Dem candidate for Gov. came out looking really good!. Maybe the National referendum on George Bush may play an even more important role since it's his brother Gov. Jeb Bush together with an overwhelming Repug legislature run the show in Florida?

6. Crist gave me the impression that murder was legal in Florida
he kept talking about an "Anti murder" piece of legislation that he's going to propose. No wonder the murder rate is up in Florida seeing is how it's legal and all.
