Florida's Democratic Chairman, Rod Smith, casts a suspicious eye on Charlie Crist's potential party switch and hypothetical run for governor.
"I'm one of those believers who says, 'If you want to join our church you're always welcome in our congregation.' But that doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to make you my preacher,'' said state Democratic chairman Rod Smith, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2006.
"I think he would have to take some Desi Arnaz lessons if he ran as a Democrat. He would have some 'splaining to do."
Mmmm... not too sure if the Desi Arnaz crack is the most tactful in the world, particularly considering Florida's sizable Cuban-American population.
Crist, a former Republican governor of Florida, is speaking at the Democratic convention Thursday night.
