Just before Hillary Clinton's speech last night, I had the chance to spend some time with Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell.

He's a staunch Clinton supporter who is now backing Barack Obama.

Last Thanksgiving, I met Gov. Rendell in Philadelphia's historic train station. He was selling pies for a local charity. I purchased a sweet potato pie and a pecan pie. I love sweet potato pie.

I recounted that story to the governor and he, too, was fond of those pies.

You can't go wrong with sweet potato pie.
