Charlie’s Breakfast

January 2nd, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

While the nation mourns the death of Gerald Ford, it is a day of celebration in Tallahassee as the state welcomes a new governor. Charlie Crist will take the oath of office a high noon and as Mike Vasilinda tells us, he is already stressing bi partisanship.

Charlie Crists day began early with a 7:30 prayer breakfast at Florida A&M University.
Inside, there were moments of reverence from Rabbi Schneur Oirechnan May they go from strength to strength as they embark upon this new era of leadership .

And their was joyful music talking about the promise of the future. The governor elect even danced briefly on the stage. His words were few, but set the tone of things to come.

Senator Nelson, Grace thank you so much for being here. We are from different sides of the aisle, but we are both Floridians and were gonna work hard for the betterment of this great state. said Crist.

Afterwards the governor elects father told us he wasnt offering any words of wisdom.
Dr Charlie Crist was asked whats it like on a day like this for the father?

Oh, its just wonderful. Great weather. Wasnt it nice the sun came out? Lets hope thats an omen. He responded.

And Charlie Crist, the man soon to be governor let on that he is excited.

I feel good I really do. Didnt sleep much last night, candidly, but uh Im excited and looking forward to a great day ahead.

Charlie Crist becomes the states 44th governor.
