Rendell: 'Tepid' Support Good Enough for Democrats


Recommended Posts

Fox News:

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell had a piece of advice Sunday for Democratic strategists trying to lure the "liberal" base out to the polls -- voters don't have to like the party's candidates, they just have to vote for them.

The Democratic governor stressed the importance of get-out-the-vote efforts in the final weeks of the midterm election campaigns. He said Democrats need to stress that the alternative of a Republican-led Congress is "bad" for voters -- even if those voters aren't wild about the Democratic candidates.

"Our job in the next four weeks is to tell our base, our liberal friends, this is a choice. And the other choice is starkly bad for America and for the things you believe in," Rendell said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "And remember, there's an old political adage. All we have got to do is get them to the polls because a tepid vote counts the same as a wildly enthusiastic vote."

Well, at least he didn't tell them to stop whining... :rolleyes:
