    Nan Rich v. Charlie Crist. Why not debate?
    My first question to Nan Rich was, "How did this happen?" How did Charlie Crist, just 18 short months after checking the "D" on his voter-registration form, become the best thing going for the party? This is a guy who once enjoyed being known as...
