"Arlen Specter has crushed Republican spirits while causing Democrats to rejoice, but his stunning party switch came with a warning label: The Obama agenda isn’t suddenly a slam dunk just because he’s a Democrat now."
He didn't crush my spirits and if he feels that he needs to leave the party, then so be it. However, this will not be a bash Arlen Specter rant and I will not take the opportunity to attack him the way Democrats attacked Lieberman during the election.
I will say this, people should watch Specters's press conference and take note that his main reason for switching parties is to preserve his career in the Senate. Again, this is the trouble with career politicians - they worry about their career, not their constituents. Time to get rid of the XVII amendment.
