Alex Sink poses riddle to top fundraisers



Nintendo A-team-logo Mtv1 What do Nintendo, the A-Team, MTV, and Microsoft Windows have in common?

That was the question posed to dozens of top Democratic fundraisers gathered last night at the lakefront Thonotosassa home of Alex Sink for a pep talk/strategery session. We're told the bundlers, including a representative from Emily's List, scratched their heads looking at a screen showing a bunch of logos from the 1980s.

The answer? None of them existed when Bill McCollum first took office.

It illustrates the general line of attack ahead for Sink's gubernatorial campaign: Florida can choose between a career politician who's been in office forever, or they can choose a fresh-faced, career businesswoman just starting in public service?
