Charlie Crist refuses to say whom he will caucus with, should he be elected to the Senate. Which is smart. But it’s also hard to keep up that guessing game when you have to actually explain how you would vote on things, in the Senate. That is when independent Florida Gov. Charlie Crist keeps getting mixed up!
Last week, he said that while the healthcare reform bill was flawed, he would’ve voted for it. His campaign immediately issued a “clarification” explaining that he would not have voted for it.
Then, yesterday, he told CNN that he backs a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, even though he is “OK” with two dudes living together, or whatever. A few hours later, the Crist campaign “clarified” that the governor just meant an amendment to the Florida constitution. That is, apparently, the “moderate” compromise on the issue.
