I'll pay: Crist goes to O's inaugruation on own $

Last week, there was some worry Florida Gov. Charlie Crist might use taxpayer dollars to attend Barack Obama's inauguration in D.C.

After no-commenting its way through a few news cycles, Crist's camp says the governor will be traveling sans taxpayer assistance.

And on the Will He Run for Senate or Won't He, Florida Politics is reporting today that...

Although "Crist continues to politely demur", rumor has it that a decision to run is pretty much a go. Seems Charlie's looking for the right time to float the balloon and announce.

This, despite last week's word from "sources close to him" that he'd all but ruled out a run. Expect this teeter-totter to keep teetering and tottering at least until the budget situation is resolved.
