I think Democrats' lack of pizazz stems directly from their always trying to be middle of the road and centrist. Alex Sink was lackluster BECAUSE she is a DLC corporatist. Ditto Jim Davis, "Mister Sink" and Buddy Mackay.

The FDP also has a wrongheaded strategy of trying to woo back the blue dogs in small rural counties with conservative-lite. This depresses turnout among African Americans, South Florida liberals and Puerto Ricans who are the Dems real base in Florida now. Florida Democrats need to wake up and realize it's 2011 and Florida is not demographically a Southern state anymore, even if our politicians have imposed economic Southernism. Stop humming "Swanee River" and worrying about Dixie County and Panny-maw City. Also Alan Grayson has no shortage of pizazz. Why don't we see him running for something?

I think "Pizazz" should be left for American Idol or America's got Talent candidates....

political candidates with "Pizazz" most always bite Americans in the "AZZ".......
