Another joint Barack Obama-Charlie Crist appearance?



Ocrist We're getting ahead of ourselves here, because we don't yet have details of President Obama's visit to Tampa Bay Thursday but the widespread speculation is that it will be a high speed rail announcement.

So if you're Charlie Crist and you've been touting high speed rail as a great jobs creator do you join the president (maybe skip the hug) Thursday and bask in the glow of Tampa-Orlando being the first high speed rail city pair in the western hemisphere? Or do you schedule some pressing sock drawer rearranging and stay away from Obama to avoid handing Marco Rubio images of Crist and Obama looking like pals?
