Florida Politicos are agog, passing along speculation that Gov. Charlie Crist and Vice President Joe Biden had a secret dinner meeting in Miami on January 16, ostensibly to talk about Crist's potentially abandoning his Republican Senate bid and running as an independent or a Democrat. The rumors are completely false, but numerous reporters contacted the Vice President's office to ask about them today. Even a mere hint that Crist was thinking about running as an independent or a Democrat would virtually guarantee a primary win for Marco Rubio, his opponent.
