Get Ready For Crist vs. Clinton in 2016
At this point, I don't see a Crist 2012 run as a reality. He'sunpopular amongst the base
and his political positions on major issuesdon't separate him enough
from Obama. If he runs for re-election as Governor, he'd be out of office by early 2015, perfect timing to kick off a 2016 campaign. Meanwhile his party will have run some conservative dream ticket like Romney/Jindal or Limbaugh/Palin in 2012 that, unless Obama screws up big time, will probably lose horribly. Prevailing logic will then be to move the party back towards the center, and Crist will be there standing in the middle of the political spectrum with open arms.
