Sink-Scott dead even on eve of election; GOP establishment terrified of Sarah Palin running for President; And Bill Clinton assuages his guilt by appearing with Kendrick Meek tonight in Orlando; Mitch Perry Report 11.1.10H

Happy post Halloween Monday to you all.

Okay, so what can we say about the elections?  The very latest poll, released this morning, shows that in the governor's race, Alex Sink and Rick Scott are basically tied (Sink's up by 1 point in the Quinnipiac survey).  The Democrat holds her 2nd to last campaign event tonight in Ybor City at the Ritz, just a couple of blocks from CL's offices.

Bill Clinton comes back to stand by Kendrick Meek tonight in the final Democratic party rally, later this evening in Orlando.  Who knows what really went on in recent weeks with the former President and the Democratic Senate candidate in terms of being asked to quit the race.  The bottom line is, Clinton's coming back to be with Meek tonight, so he must feel pretty bad about the whole thing, considering Kendrick may get slaughtered in the final tally when it's all over Tuesday night.

Of course it's absurd to talk about the 2012 president race.  Give everybody until Thursday at least.  But there is already push back amongst the GOP establishment about having Sarah Palin become the nominee.  Read about their angst here.

And the last weekend in October was one of the best for following sports in America.  Both the Bucs and the University of Florida Gators games had to bring smiles to the locals, while this reporter is still on a three week high on what could possibly be the first time in their history that the San Francisco Giants could win it all.  Maybe.  Too early to say.  But looking good, nevertheless.
