Trying To Clean Up “A Nation Of Wusses”: My Interview With Political Icon Governor Ed Rendell
Governor Ed Rendell is one of the most successful and visionary leaders in the country. As Mayor of Philadelphia, he took a struggling, crime riddled, and almost bankrupt city, and turned it into a thriving metropolis, balancing the budget, and making Philadelphia one of the leading cultural and economic centers of the US. On MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews has repeatedly compared former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s successful mayoral term in NYC to Rendell’s successful run as Philadelphia’s mayor. Both Giuliani and Rendell have previously been dubbed “America’s Mayor.” Rendell was nicknamed “America’s Mayor” by Al Gore and chaired the DNC during the 2000 Presidential Election.
He then took that same “Get the job done” attitude and unique Bi-Partisan Ability to Harrisburg as a Pennsylvania Two Term Governor from 2002-2010. Outside of being one of the country’s most respected and unique leaders, “Gov” (Yes, that is what I call him in the interview!), was also one of the country’s most outspoken citizens, who was never afraid to say what was on his mind, and stand for the policies that he believed in, and it was this philosophy that made him a Democratic Powerhouse who was looked at as a VP Candidate, and now a popular Political TV Analyst, regularly appearing on MSNBC, CNN, and many more.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with a Political Icon, Governor Ed Rendell, to talk about why America and Washington has become a “Nation Of Wusses”, the unique career that has led him to pen his incredible new memoir of the same name, what made him one of the Country’s hottest and most dynamic politicians, his relationship with The Clintons, the famous Al Gore should concede comment, why politicians only care about being re-elected, his thoughts on the current election, and soo much more!! “Gov” is one of my personal heroes, having grown up in Philly and watched the transformation of the city under his leadership, and I just flat out think he is one of the coolest dudes on the planet, so this was an absolute honor for me! Enjoy Kade Nation!
And here are “Gov’s” recent TV Appearances on CNN’s Piers Morgan and MSNBC:
