A piece in today's New York Times on the Santorum-Casey race aptly summarizes the Santorum strategy headed into the home stretch: keep the race as close as possible, then win with field on Election Day.

In Forbes, a look at a phenomenon 25 years in the making: the switch of the Philadelphia burbs from redder-than-red Republican to pale-blue Democrat, especially in statewide and federal races. Can anyone name the guy who began it all? Answer here.

A profile of Lynn Swann in Sunday's Post-Gazette by Tracie Mauriello. It reads like an advance obituary of the Swann campaign, beginning with the headline: Swann has trouble catching on.

Good riddance to Romanelli. For all the Green talk of independence, he was bought and paid for by Santorum.

It reminds me of the old joke: "What kind of woman do you think I am?" "We've already established that, now we're just bickering over the price."
