The Democratic Party bigwigs thought Joe Biden was going to be the problem because he has a tendency to say things in public that he's not supposed to. But leave it to Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell to take the Foot-In-Mouth title at this week's convention in Denver, says Clout, the Philadelphia Inquirer's online column.
According to the post "Ed has foot-in-mouth relapse," Rendell told a Washington Post blogger that Barack Obama is "not exactly the easiest guy in the world to identify with."
The gov went on to compared Obama with Democrat Adlai Stevenson, who lost the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections.
Is that wishful thinking on the part of the former Hillary Clinton supporter?
