1) Charlie Rangel has promised to leave his Congressional seat if the Dems don't take back Congress... Well, I don't know, things may be boring without his scratchy voice around.
2) Is anyone in the Philly area planning on going to the Lynn Swann Rally?

3) I am pretty ambivalent about Rick Santorum as a Senator. I can't envision voting for a Dem over him in this political climate (even though the challenger is pro-life), but I have no overwhelming allegiance to him as a politician.
However...I am a major campaign wonk --I love watching the political process and I have to say... hate him or love him, Santorum's new commercial is pure political genius.
It's upbeat, there's nothing about an opponent, saying he's middle-of-the-road, distancing himself from the White House and playing to the Unions... genius. I'll have to look up who's heading his campaign. I'm impressed Ricky --It's exactly the ad I would have run.
