President Obama is planning to roll into Delaware County tomorrow for an ostensibly nonpolitical event that could finally give Democrats the Election Day boost they need to break the GOP's 35-year monopoly of County Council.
Not likely, though, if recent history is any guide.
The ghost of JFK could descend on Delco and Republicans would probably still dominate at the polls.
Democrats have cut deeply into the GOP voter-registration advantage in recent years, but that hasn't translated into success in countywide races.
"I'm flattered they felt the need to bring the president in to counter our campaign," deadpanned Republican John McBlain, a lawyer and veteran politician running for County Council.
