Rendell Won't Run

The Doylestown Intelligencer notes that when Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) was asked whether he's interested in running for president in 2008, Rendell said, "Not really. The timing is wrong for me."Rendell "believes Hillary Clinton would be tough to beat in a Democratic primary, but isn't certain she'll run because of her good standing in New York and all of the history that would be dredged up."

I don't see Rendell as a viable candidate anyway. He is beloved in Philadelphia and the eastern half of Pennsylvania. Beyond that, most folks think very little of him. He ain't running and good riddance. We don't need any slick politicians in 2008, thats for sure.
