New quotes from Rendell on arena funding.

But the old folks/yinzers in the county all get super pissed off about the public funding portion, and THEY decide to vote him out of office for ramming an arena down their throats.
That would be getting our cake, and eating it, too. Pens stay, Rendell leaves. We all win.

"We hope this will be a good enough plan that the Penguins will say. Our first choice is the gaming license. But if that fails, the plan that has been presented by the mayor, county executive and the governor will be sufficient to keep us here," Rendell said.

I'm quite convinced there's NO WAY the license is awarded before the election. I only helps the Gov if he delays.
