Buzz Bissinger digs out the notes he took during "A Prayer For The City" and puts them too good use in a piece for the New Republic that considers why Ed Rendell makes so much sense on paper as Barack Obama's vice presidential candidate.

Then concludes there's no way it could happen.

Basically, the governor - sketched by Buzz as blunt, profane, refreshingly unpredictable, shrewd, Jewish and Pennsylvanian - would bring much to the ticket. But he would likely displace all the water in Obama's political pool.

The profile is closely observed, as they say, of our gov., describes in this piece as "a large, hairy bear of man."
