Golden oldie video: Charlie Crist pounds George Sheldon over pot




Republican Charlie Crist ran against Democrat George Sheldon for education commissioner, and despite Crist's tough campaign against Sheldon there appears to be no ill will. Republican Gov, Crist later appointed Sheldon as head of the Florida Department of Children and Families. Now, Crist and Sheldon appear likely to share the Democratic ticket in 2014.

In honor of Sheldon's entry into the race for attorney general, we've dusted off a 13-year-old ad that shows what a long strange trip it's been for Crist. Here the likely Democratic gubernatorial candidate whose boss John Morgan is leading a ballot initiative to legalize medical marijuana attacks Sheldon for being soft on marijuana.
