Crist asked if Rubio qualified to be VP and says, 'I'll leave that to others to decide'



cristrubio1.jpgCharlie Crist was just interviewed by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell and she asked if his former rival Marco Rubio was qualified to be VP.

"I'll leave that to others to decide," Crist said, nothing that he thinks Rubio is a nice guy.The interview was triggered by Crist's recent criticism of the GOP voter purge and other restrictions in Florida. Crist also said he hasn't decided whom he'll support for president, which is sure to stoke the chatter he'll back Obama.
