Had to be Ed Rendell’s when he saw Lynn Swann run on to Ford Field with other past Superbowl MVPs. Swann got a thundering reception from the pro-Steelers crowd. Let’s see –tired, old party hack versus fresh face superstar with charisma. Rendell’s got a money advantage, but Swann is already pulling ahead in the polling.
It is the Arnold effect –someone new, someone not defined by the battles of the past dozen years. Unlike Arnold, Swann’s also liked by the GOP base.
And by a whole bunch of Keystone State voters who generally couldn’t care a bit about politics. If he can get The Bus on his bus, Swann should have a fun spring, summer and another victory in the fall.
