On the one hand, this is a blatant ploy to become politically relevant again, and probably to become Florida's governor again.
But I think this also goes to show how the GOP's fealty to it's bullshit ideas is purging itself of some of its brightest members. Chris Christie's poll numbers among Republicans are really suffering because he had the temerity to suggest that Obama did a good job when Obama was doing a good job. Christie has a unique political personality that might have been refreshing on the national stage, but he's unlikely to get much traction in 2016 unless he goes full metal wingnut.
Meanwhile, Crist (not Christie... what is it with these names?) will likely become the frontrunner for the next gubernatorial race in
Keep an eye on Susan Collins, folks.
