Rendell predicts a Clinton win, but...

Gar Joseph reports:

Gov. Rendell was at the Famous deli for the usual election-day power lunch, and sounding positive about his candidate's chances -- but more positive if all of the state's counties vote.

The guv said that, if the turnout is even through the state, Clinton will win by 6 to 10 points.

If turnout is heaviest in the Philly burbs, Clinton wins by 4 to 6 points, Rendell said.

He was one of many boldfaced names at the traditional gathering, which also included State Sen. Tony Williams, Register of Wills Ronald Donatucci, District Attorney Lynne Abraham and State Rep. Bill Keller.

And who wasn't there? The State Senator who is likely to see his replacement elected today.

Vince Fumo and his cronies were down on Passyunk Avenue, at the Paradiso.
