Ambassador Robert Wexler - maybe not

Crist majic In May, Politico reported that former Florida Congressman Robert Wexler was on the verge of becoming the next ambassador to Israel.

Now, Wexler, who quit his congressional seat to become head of the Washington-based Middle East think tank, is widely reported to be on the verge of endorsing No-Party Gov. Charlie Crist in the race for the U.S. Senate.

Wildly popular in the Jewish condos of Palm Beach and Broward counties, an endorsement from Democrat Wexler could give a boost to Crist who is desperately trying to  pull a rabbit out of the hat by building a coalition of Democrats, Republicans, and no-party voters.

But Wexler is also a self-described "fire-breathing liberal" and an endorsement of Crist could help rally supporters of Republican Marco Rubio.

Wexler is not a beloved figure outside the condos of South Florida.

His endorsement can also be seen as a slap at Democratic nominee, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek and a moment of disloyality to the Democratic Party.

While a Wexler endorsement may help - Crist is going to need a lot more magic to pull of the political trick of winning this election.
