Ed Rendell, Media Darling
I thought yesterday's New York Times story on Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was fun, but today's in the Washington Post is a hoot: Ed Rendell, ...
Ed Rendell, the charming and garrulous governor of Pennsylvania, is currently being described by Sen. Hillary Clinton in the context of manure.
"One of the things I love about Ed is he is an optimist," Clinton says, standing onstage in a college gymnasium near a banner that says "Hillary Is Erie sistable." Rendell has just finished hyping the crowd with his Emcee Eddie routine.
"He reminds me of the story about that little boy," Clinton tells the crowd. "A man walks by the barn, sees this little boy in this room filled with manure. And he's standing there and he's digging and he's digging and he's digging. And the man says, 'Son, what are you doin'? Up to your hips in manure with that little shovel?' The boy says, 'Well, with this much manure around, there's gotta be a pony and I'm gonna find it!' "
