Charlie Crist brings out Democratic old guard in new video

One surprising appointment that Charlie Crist made when he was Florida's Republican governor was the selection of Democrat Bob Butterworth to run the troubled Department of Children and Family Services.

A former state attorney general who seriously considered running for governor, Butterworth had a formidable reputation for fairness, toughness and a no-nonsense approach.

He also was, and is, a devout Democrat. When Crist asked Butterworth to join his administration, Crist was suggesting that fixing DCF was more important to him than simply handing the job to a Republican.

It's not a great video, but it will be reassuring to those in the Democratic establishment who still have doubts about whether Crist is really one of them.
