Charlie Crist's ideology



From today's story:

"I know what Floridians care about. People generally are not hard right. Nor are they hard left. They just want to get the right thing done for most people," the former governor said Wednesday during a forum on leadership at the University of Tampa.

"They want good education. They want to be able to start a business in an economy. They want appropriate regulation, but not too much," Crist said. "They want the kind of government that stays out of your hair, thank you very much, and lets you be successful and doesn't burden you too much but does have appropriate regulation to make sure people on Wall Street act right and do right and that banks are fair with people."
