You'd think politicians appearing on talk shows or press conferences would learn: don't say anything you'll regret. Even if you think the microphones are off.
Gov. Ed Rendell was reminded of that fact on Tuesday while he was having a chat near the lectern at the National Governors Conference in Philadelphia. Commenting on the appointment of Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as Barack Obama's new director of Homeland Security, he said, "Janet's perfect for that job. Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family. Perfect. She can devote, literally, 19-20 hours a day to it."

Rendell apologized for his statement on Wednesday, saying, "What I meant is that Janet is a person who works 24/7, just like me."
