He could. Go. All the way!

One of the better sideline reporters is football today is Lynn Swann. He is known primarily for his involvement over 9 years with a Pittsburgh Steelers team that won 4 Super Bowls. He may give up his commentator role for a position that he could really run with- Governor of Pennsylvania.

If Swann wins the Republican nomination and beats incumbent Ed Rendell, he would be the first black governor of Pennsylvania. It is telling that among blacks reaching positions of prominence in government and politics, a significant percentage are Republicans- Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, and Colin Powell, among others.

Something to think about.
