Rendell Handicaps Handicapped Field, 'Caps Dan

Ed Rendell, who has barely attempted to conceal his support for Dan Onorato in the race for Pennsylvania governor, now can't hide his lack of regard for Onorato's strength as a candidate.

After noting Democrats' million-plus registration edge, Rendell expressed concern about Democratic chances in November: "[W]e have to give our base a reason to get out there, a reason to feel proud of who we are and what we stood for as a party,” he said. “And I don’t think up to now we’ve done a very effective job in doing it.”

No reported response from the Democratic front- and moneyrunner, although it is not dificult to imagine Onorato, upon recognizing that Rendell was talking about him, uttering a muted, hurt "Hey . . ."
