Kendrick Meek Bitch-Slaps Bill Clinton, Doesn't Want to Be Seen as Quitter (UPDATED)
|Meek denied reports that Clinton wanted him to quit.|
On two separate occasions, Meek agreed to the deal -- going so far as to plan an
endorsement rally with the Crist campaign October 26. According to Politico, Meek changed his mind after his wife, who apparently reads no newspapers/magazines/blogs, convinced him he could still win the election.
According to an unnamed Democrat who was working on the endorsement deal, Meek has decided that "not being seen as a quitter was more important than stopping someone who was so opposed to what you and your party had stood for."
Meek said Clinton asked him about reports that Meek was considering quitting but didn't come out and ask him to concede. And if he had, Meek said he wouldn't quit anyway. "I'm not playing politics," Meek said on CNN. "I'm not doing backroom deals."
