PA Governor Rendell endorses Clinton

Sigh.  Governor Rendell has thrown his support behind Hillary Clinton.

But she wasn't his first choice:

"He had, in fact, already made financial contributions to Clinton and two other candidates: Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, a longtime friend and political ally, and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a colleague in the National Governors' Association.

"Once the field was cleared," Rendell said, referring to the withdrawals of Biden and Richardson earlier this month, "I told them [the Clinton campaign] they could have my endorsement any time they wanted it."

So only after nearly everyone else dropped did he settle for Clinton.

This is an important endorsement for Hillary.  Rendell was a popular mayor of Philadelphia, and now a popular Governor of Pennsylvania.  People in and out of political circles care about what he thinks.

Obama better step it up.
