Sink Raises Democrat Hopes

14

August

It's been four years since someone with a "D" behind the name filled a Florida Cabinet seat. Since then, Democrats suffered another White House defeat - largely on Florida soil. Since then, Democrats watched the GOP redraw political districts to protect the party's 2-to-1 lead in the state House.

And several prominent local Democrats defected. Dark days, indeed. But lo, the star Asellus Borealis ("Northern Donkey") shines bright and word of a possible political savior is spreading across the land. Democrat Alex Sink is running for chief financial officer, or CFO. If she wins this Cabinet seat, she'll run a state department that's respectable in size but still smaller than the behemoth Bank of America she ran in Florida. Full story is here.
