The shorter version. Charlie Crist was originally vowing support to Rudy in the fall and then made the surprise announcement last night that he was endorsing McCain. This news has rattled the cages in the Rudy camp.:
The news is a definitive blow to Giuliani, and a sign of his fading prospects in the Sunshine State. Giuliani has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to praise Crist, and each time suggested he would be a viable vice presidential candidate.
It would probably be an appropriate time to mention an old proverb of “putting all your eggs in one basket”, but I doubt that would have any effect on Rudy. We already knew he didn’t listen to sound recommendations of other.
