Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



Mccoll2 Winner of the week: Bill McCollum. The Republican attorney general and candidate for governor won loads of national publicity in leading a group of attorneys general in trying to overturn the Democrats' health care overhaul - which is mighty  unpopular in Florida according to recent polls. A bold move, especially compared to Democrat Alex Sink, who won't even take a firm position on the health care bill.Mccoll2

Loser of the week: Bill McCollum. Bill, your leading the charge to impeach Bill Clinton, didn't win a lot of love from Florida's crucial swing voters and independents. Do you really think spending taxpayer money to hire a lobbyist friend to lead this long-shot, idealogical lawsuit will? While Sink is talking about creating jobs in Florida, you had better be careful about looking like another creature of Washington.
