Alex Sink: Bill McCollum's just a career politician



Alex Sink tonight at the 2009 Democratic convention: "This is no ordinary recession. These times call for something more than a career politician as our next governor. Bill McCollum has spent more than thirty years as a professional politician.  Twenty years in Washington.  Six years as a special-interest lobbyist.  This run for governor is his fourteenth political campaign.
Now, give Bill McCollum some credit.  He’s done a very good job of making sure he always has a job. But what about jobs for everybody else? This is no time for politics-as-usual.  Not now.  Not with the challenges we face.
