The Next Governor of Florida

We're soon to lose a great governor in the state of Florida. Through almost eight years he's finally put Florida's education system on the right track (though the critical school vouchers program was taken away by a unjustifiable decision from our Supreme Court), kept an economy that relies heavily on tourism strong despite the national downturn at the beginning of the decade, cut taxes, kept the budget under control, and has left the state much more conservative than when he gained office. It's my belief that if Gov. Bush had a different name that he would be a juggernaut walking into the White House in two years (though he still would not make as good a president as Gov. Romney will).

However, there are term limits, and Gov. Bush must be replaced. Tonight I saw the first campaign commercial, so it's time to start paying close attention here. Our choices are Charlie Crist and Tom Gallagher. According to Rasmussen and any other poll I've seen, the Republican candidate will most likely win this seat, so we again get to pick whoever is best. At the moment I'm leaning towards Crist, however, my loyalty is not set in stone yet.

For what it's worth, I'm a little annoyed at both of them for not just drawing straws and working it out where one will run for governor and the other for Sen. Nelson's vulnerable seat. But you can't get too angry at politicians for wanting what is arguably the office most likely to gain you the presidency outside of the vice-presidency.
