He said what!!??
That was the reaction many had after hearing what Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell said about white voters in his state and Senator Barack Obama.
First, you should know, Rendell has endorsed Obama’s opponent, Senator Hillary Clinton. Why? He said, “If you were having brain surgery and you had one brain surgeon who was considered the greatest, A+, and you had one who was graded A, you could choose either one of them, not pay any more for either one of them, you choose the A+. Obviously. And that’s why Hillary Clinton should be our nominee."
But in a meeting with the Pittsburgh Gazette in February, Gov. Rendell said, “You've got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African American candidate."
Yes, he went there...
