    A guy who presided over the biggest medicare fraud in US history.

    It shows you how anti-incumbent the mood is when the public would rather have a guy who presided over a $1.7 billion fraud than a career politician in Bill McCollum.

    Really? So there are American voters who would rather vote for a felon, than vote for a Career Politician?

    There is no anti-incumbent mood. That is a fallacy. Scott won because McCollum is a very flawed candidate who lost Florida voters' trust and confidence years ago. Scott also, like Meg Whitman and Michael Bloomberg and Jeff Greene and John "I'm not a maverick" McCain, spent over $20 million of his own money. I am on the Panhandle, and I saw Scott commercials constantly and McCollum commercials rarely.

    No matter - Alex Sink would have beat either of them, and will be our first female Governor.
