By Brian E. Crowley Sometimes the saddest thing is watching a politician who has been booted from the stage. No matter how happy they say they are, one can always see the longing to be back. Sometimes they run again. Sometimes they pontificate from the sidelines, with fewer and fewer... Continue reading

Poor Charlie Crist. The Florida Congressman couldn't sleep a wink last night. Of course Crist's reason for not sleeping was a tad different than Frank Sinatra's song would suggest.

Tasteless? Perhaps. A little too quick on the draw? Possibly. But none of that is stopping Florida Democrats from turning the resignation of Florida Sen. Frank Artiles into a fundraising opportunity - just a couple of hours after he resigns. Will it work? Here's the pitch: BREAKING NEWS (via FlaDems.com)<grassroots@fladems.com>... Continue reading

Senate President Joe Negron failed. The Florida Senate failed. Florida Republicans failed. With a silly slap on the wrist, they are simply tolerating a member of the senate using the harshest of racist words - nigger. Republican Senator Frank Artiles stood on the Senate floor Wednesday and read a scripted... Continue reading

Not likely but possible. That's the short answer as to whether Congressman Patrick Murphy's dismal campaign can be saved by Hillary Clinton. Murphy's campaign has been a bit of mystery.

Jeff Clemens, a candidate for the Florida senate, Patrick Murphy, a candidate for the U.S. Senate, and Gwen Graham, a likely future candidate for governor, represent the future to many Florida Democrats, a party that desperately needs a future.

This is one of those ads that - while being used for politics - rises above it all. Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio helped this mother when her daughter was dying of breast cancer. "Thanks to Marco, I had three more months with my daughter," she says. "Marco Rubio was... Continue reading
