Report: Ed Rendell Finalizing Deal To Be A MSNBC Pundit

Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has regularly appeared across all news networks providing his analysis on national issues, and it looks as if soon he will be paid to continue to do just that as a political commentator for MSNBC. Politico reports that Rendell is in final negotiations with the network to be a contributor for the 2012 election cycle.

Rendell has previously shown his passion for certain issues and is often an aggressive, but still entertaining debater. In an interview, he said “I’m doing it mostly because I want to continue to participate in the public dialogue and speeches and television are the best venues to do that.” With Keith Olbermann out, might MSNBC have some extra money lying around, allowing the network to continue shopping for new talent?
