This morning on MSNBC, Democratic Governor Ed Rendell evaluated Barack Obama’s handling of the Blagojevich scandal:
“They have never been in an executive position before,” Rendell said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The rule of thumb is whatever you did, say it and get it over with and make it a one-day story as opposed to a three-day story. Politicians are always misjudging the intelligence of the American people.”
Rendell continued: Of course Obama’s team had contact with Blagojevich. Admit it up front and move on. Don’t make it a multi-day story.
I agree but, as Rendell says, Obama and his team don’t have executive experience. I guess running a campaign wasn’t as valuable as they thought.
NOTE: I corrected the spelling of Gov. Rendell’s name. Thanks to commenter grs.
