Winner, loser of the week in Florida politics



clint.jpgWinner of the week: Bill Clinton. The ex-president seemed to have lost his mojo in 2008, but it was back on display in Florida this week as he campaigned for Alex Sink and Kendrick Meek. There's still one Democratic president most candidates aren't wary of embracing this year.

Loser of the week: Florida Democrats. Rocked by scandal after scandal, the Florida GOP has never seen as much internal turmoil as this year. Despite that, the latest St. Petersburg Times-Miami Herald-Bay News 9 poll shows the GOP poised to sweep every statewide election.
