NY Times on Rendell & Clinton

Yesterday was Mayor Nutter, today the NY Times looks at Governor Ed Rendell's support of Sen. Hillary Clinton. While detailing Rendell's tireless campaigning on behalf of Clinton, the story also makes clear he's a politician: "Even as he promotes Mrs. Clinton — she is the best prepared to be president, he says, and she “gets it” — Mr. Rendell is careful to keep the door open with Mr. Obama should she not succeed in winning her party’s presidential nomination." We also liked this quote from Sen. Arlen Specter: “He jumps in with both feet,” said Senator Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, who first hired Mr. Rendell when Mr. Specter was Philadelphia’s district attorney in the 1970s. “He knows the territory. And he knows where the bodies are buried.”
