Love is in the air.

With Valentine's Day less than a week away, Florida Governor Charlie Crist has applied to be President Obama's special bipartisan Valentine.

The White House announced today that Crist will join the president at a rally in Fort Myers to speak up for the gargantuan spending package known as the economic stimulus bill.

GOP love

The fact that he supports it isn't a surprise.

Along with three other Republican governors -- Vermont's Jim Douglas, Connecticut's Jodi Rell, and California's Arnold Schwarzenegger -- he's been an outspoken advocate.


For a while, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was thrown into the mix. The CATO Institute lumped her in with the supporters. But she has since put out a statement denying any support for the legislation.

You might remember that Crist was a big supporter of John McCain's during the election. But those loyalties only last so long. This is about money and jobs.

Show me the money

How did Obama get Crist's support?
