But of Course: Rendell Leads

According to a Quinnipiac University poll, Governor Rendell has a ten percentage point lead over Republican challenger Lynn Swann - 47% to 37%. Relatedly, Pennsylvania created 60,000 new jobs last year - the highest annual increase in five years - according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Philadelphia added nearly 21,000 net new jobs, a five-year high. Here's the thing...Eddie's doing a great job; the State's economy and employment is healthier than it's been in years, tourism is up, and government efficiency is peaking. His opponent has no experience, no vision, and no plan. In the end, we'll have four more years of the most effective governor Pennsylvania has seen in decades.

The smartest thing you've ever said...and I think you're a pretty intelligent guy.

Give me a break. Don't assume that the rest of Pennsylvania outside of the Philly area holds Fast Eddie in such high regard. If you look at those labor statistics closely, you’ll see that manufacturing jobs, the backbone of this Commonwealth, are woefully down and that most of the wages of the jobs created are below the state average. Most effective governor in decades? If he is so effective, why can’t he get the slots debacle resolved? Other than getting slots legislation passed, what else has Fast Eddie done?

Concerning the poll, “More than half of the overall respondents said they still don't know enough about Swann, who is making his first bid for political office, to form an opinion about him.” I wouldn’t break out the champagne just yet.

Lots of good information. I will not open the champagne just yet, but I'll buy a bottle.
