in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

Now that the silly season of presidential election politics has descended upon us, it’s time to prepare for the inevitable photographic onslaught of candidates shoving food into their pie holes.

I’d like to see Rubio leading, obviously, but a couple of things are jumping out at me in recent polling. 1. Democrats are wavering between Crist and Meek.

Charlie Crist. Establishment Democrats in Florida, for now,…
