As the presidential primary season shifts from choosing nominees to choosing running mates, Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell (D), a Hillary Clinton supporter, brings up a good question about whether the New York senator — a powerhouse of Washington politics for more than 15 years — fits the campaign message crafted by the likely Democratic contender, Barack Obama. From NBC’s "Today Show" Thursday morning:
Well, I think the biggest con is that Senator Obama has talked about changing Washington from the beginning. And you’re taking someone who has been a fixture in Washington … And how do you reconcile that?
Rendell, it should be mentioned, is one of those names being tossed around as a possible pick for vice president.
