  1. Wouldn’t Charly Zogby make a great PAGOP alternative to Tom Corbett? He is the highest Charter Cyber School imbed anywhere in the state Government in the US, so raising funds will be no problem. (GIVE UNTIL IT HURTS VAHAN GUREGHIAN!!) Zogby is quite arrogant too. Looks like a winning combination to me.
