If that statement is true, I think that is atrocious, but it still doesn't change my opinion of Lynn Swann - the candidate. I don't think there is a one of us out there who can say with an honest mind and heart that we haven't said or done something in our lives that down the road, we've regretted.

From the article Godfather linked to:
All year, Mr. Rendell has consistently held a large lead over Mr. Swann, sometimes over 20 points, in large part because many voters don't know much about the former Pittsburgh Steelers star and because he hasn't been able to raise enough campaign funds to start running TV ads.
I found this paragraph to be interesting. Seems like the journalist is blantanly crossing a line between reporting facts and editorializing when he says that the reason Swann is behind by so much is just because the people don't know him. They could very well be right for all I know, but it seems like a highly subjective presumption to make is a regular article that is not supposed to be an opinion piece.
