    Default Arlen Specter switches to Dem party

    after 30 yrs Specter switches to the Dem party, looks like he was going to lose the primary anyhow, remember he was one of the three republicans that voted for the bailout, hope the constituents of Pennsylvania send him into retirement

    I loved his claim that the Republican party is too far to the right. HAHAHAHAHA. Hellsbells...any party, including the Greens, are too far right for Mr. Spector. He's been a bona fide RINO for years. The folks in Pennsylvania must be elated.

    Just think, Jeff, now you have your chance to vote for him legitimatley. That will be an election the nation will be holding it's breath over. Hopefully the conservatives can gain a foothold in that state and show Spector what being right REALLY means.

    Just think, Barney's got the queer vote, now Spector has the Morpheus vote. You folks in the Democrat party must be so proud, following so close to what the founding fathers had in mind to lead the Nation.

    For those of you with short memories - This is the guy GW backed in the primary, 5 years ago - only to get bit repeatedly by his votes - but just another example of GW's inability to pick a winner.

    He's actually returning to them. He began as a Democrat, ran for state DA as a Republican and found electability on that side of the isle. All's well that ends well.

    I think the correct term is now Benedict Arlen......its ironic that the voters that continually put him in office as a RINO will now be the ones that hopefully will be the ones that take him out of office...it should be illegal that a sitting Senator switch parties while in office
