The more encouragement you get, and the more listening you do, the more encouraged I am." Crist has been acting as if he were running, attending one Democratic event after another. On Friday night, he was a guest at an Urban League dinner in St. Petersburg; last weekend it was the state Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner in Hollywood.  "He has something every week," said his wife, Carole Crist, who attends most events with him and works crowds with gusto.
