Hillary's FL crusader



Miami activist and Hillarynow founder Bob Kunst, who has criss-crossed the country touting Hillary Clinton for president, will be speaking Thursday night to the Greater Pinellas Democratic Club at Banquet Masters in Pinellas Park. A former Democratic candidate, Kunst has put hundreds of thousands of miles on his odometer trying to drum up a grass roots movement for Sen. Clinton, and he's also characteristically blunt about his disenchantment with what he sees as a cautious, middle-of-the-road campaign so far.

"I'm trying to get her to win and I don't think that the DC approach is helpful...I don't think she's the problem. I think the problem is the people behind her. The public wants not middle of the road, they want substance,'' said Kunst, who has never received a word of thanks from the Clinton team. "I really believe that she is the stongest Democrat and the only Democrat that's electable, but if she keeps moving in this losing direction and it looks fatal I really could be interested in Giuiliani."
