In his playing days, Peter Boulware didn’t leave anything to chance on the field. His plays were sure; a sack, a tackle for a loss, a play in the open field.
So to hear that he’s in a close race for a congressional seat in Florida is quite a surprise, especially when you consider that he’s a Christian, Republican, black man running for office; the holy trinity of political clout in the Sunshine State.
At any other time in history, Boulware likely runs away with this election. But with the Obama Change Train full speed ahead around the country, Boulware can hold only hold on tight, say a few prayers, and hope that recounts in Florida still work the way they usually do for Republicans.
