Finally, he admits the obvious:
Gov. Charlie Crist sat down with ABC Action News reporter Sarina Fazan Monday afternoon. When asked about whether or not he will run as an independent in the race for U.S. Senate, he said he has not made up his mind yet.
“I can tell you I’m getting a lot of advice in that direction. I’m a listener and so I’m certainly listening to it,” said Crist. […]
In the past Crist has skirted questions about a possible independent run. But he now admits many around him are pushing for a party change.
“I am certainly listening to people’s counsel and advice because I think that is the smart thing to do,” the Governor as I said earlier I want to do what the right thing is for the people first and I am looking at it through that lens I really am.
Well, that’s not quite right — while Crist has been skirting the issue in the past few days, his camp previously laid down some very definitive statements affirming his commitment to running in the Republican primary. It now seems clear that Crist has one of two choices to make: fully embrace the indie route and be prepared to stand as a man alone, or duck out of politics altogether until the current age of insanity subsides.
