I guess this isn't very surprising. He has been building towards this for awhile. But he has a rude awakening. The national landscape is not nearly as tilted towards his party as the state landscape is. His caving to special interests and his letting Mike Miller control him won't play out very well on a national level. All anybody needs to do is go back to his statements on gambling during Ehrlich's term, and his flip-flop once he got in the governors office. He may also have to finally acknowledge whether he disclosed that DUI on his bar application that he refused to release. In short, he will get eaten alive by both democrats and republicans on the national stage.
