"What changed is the leadership of the Republican Party. As I said at the convention, I didn't leave the Republican Party, it left me. Whether the issue was immigration, or education, or you name it - the environment. I feel at home now."

-- Former Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist officially registered as a Democrat at a White House holiday party this week. Crist, long rumored to be a closet case, originally left the Republican Party to run for statewide office as an Independent, but spoke at the Democratic National Convention on how far right the Republicans have become.
