  •  I agree on people needing to get in soon (0+ / 0-)

    I agree with you on your point about Sestak needing to get in the mix rather than rumors of him running just being "out there."

    I only put forth these two reasons that I think Sestak would make a better candidate than Schwartz:

    1) He made a strong run for the Senate in 2010 in a horrible year for Democrats and used a really strong statewide effort to do so. Schwartz has not run for anything statewide as of yet.

    2) Schwartz would make an excellent governor, but I'd be afraid that her connections to Philadelphia would allow her to include the trash element of the Democratic Party that includes school choice zealots, voucher demons, anti-teacher voices, etc. I don't have any reason to assume Schwartz would be influenced by those idiots, but far too many urban Democrats have been duped on education issues. Anthony Hardy Williams (PA Senate) comes to mind as particularly offensive on school issues.

    All of that being said, I'd strongly support her in the general election vs. any Republican with no questions asked.
