How to move Rubio's 100 Ideas



12164621_2 For months, a stack of Marco Rubio's 100 Innovative Ideas sat in the gift shop at the State Capitol. "I couldn't give them away," shopworker Gilda Morris said.

So last Thursday Morris tapped the buyers' psyche. She put up a big sign that read "free" and placed the books in a more prominent spot. By Friday, they were gone. We wonder if Gov. Crist put a few under his tree.

Feeling left out? You can still get one on Amazon. But not for free.
