We're told that a heavy hitting local pol recently said of the presidential race -- Who's the guy that can beat the skirt?
Gov. Ed Rendell got behind the skirt -- AKA Hillary Clinton -- this afternoon. Mayor Nutter -- who has already endorsed Clinton -- came up from DC for the occasion.
The Inquirer's Larry Eichel has the full report here.
Apparantly Bill Clinton asked Ed for his backing over two months ago, but he didn't want to support Hil with Biden and Richardson still in the race.
