PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Barely out of office as the state's chief executive less than a week and Democrat Ed Rendell has already managed to secure two new high-profile jobs. Hours after it has been announced that Rendell would be returning as a partner to the Philadelphia-based private practice of Ballard Spahr, the firm he left eight years ago in order to pursue the governorship, Steve Capus, president of NBC News, issued a press release stating that the former Governor of Pennsylvania, effective immediately, would serve a political analyst for both NBC News and its sister cable news channel, MSNBC.[1][2] Rendell, who has never been afraid to speak his mind, once referring to fellow Democrats as "wusses" for refusing to embrace the newly-enacted federal health care reform law, "couldn't be a better fit for NBC News," said Capus, "His extensive experience serving the people of Pennsylvania gives him a unique perspective and we're thrilled to have him on board."[3]
