Arlen Specter Swings to Dem side

It is no surprise to me that Arlen Specter, now a former Republican of Pennsylvania has moved over to the Democratic side. He is not doing very well in his state, had someone else bidding for the nomination of his seat and has not voted under the Republican thought process in a while. So when the announcement came yesterday, I found myself not surprised, amused and saying "how typical". He is selfish and is running to keep his job alive. It just goes to show he is not representing his state, people or party but only himself. Let's see how long he lasts, hopefully not long. Oh but what a nice gift to give for the current administration, someone who flip flops and you cannot count on. You can read more about it here.

As a Republican, I am glad he made the switch. Now when they try to put in a Supreme Court Justice, it will be more difficult since he was pretty much the sure bet for the Republican vote.
