Specter To Switch Parties

Specter To Switch Parties. "Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania said on Tuesday he would switch to the Democratic party, presenting Democrats with a possible 60th vote and the power to break Senate filibusters as they try to advance the Obama administration’s new agenda."

Hehe. :)

That's what the Republicans get for not allowing centrists in their party. More interesting will be to see if he in fact can win reelection.

I don't see a far right path for the Republicans to regain seats in the house or senate or the presidency, but two years or four years is a lot of time. Perhaps the Congress question is a more local one, but nationally the President is very popular and that helps his party.
