This is probably the first and only time I will comment on politics here on this blog. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved to watch politics. That’s one of the reasons I became a journalist.
The two political figures who prompted me to post– Artur Davis and Charlie Crist– were two moderates within their respective parties, one of whom has decided to change parties.
Political junkies like me are salivating as we prepare to a feast for the next two weeks with the quadrennial political conventions. It’s appointment TV for me first from Tampa and next week from Charlotte.
After reading Former Florida Republican Gov. Charlie Crist’s endorsement of Barack Obama in today’s Tampa Bay Times, I was reminded of my former Congressman Artur Davis’ change of political heart.
