Many times people partner with those that share the same qualities, characteristics, objectives and integrity. Arlen Specter is one of those people. FYI: "I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That's the basis of politics in America. I'm afraid we are becoming a one-party system. I think as a governmental matter, it is very important to have a check and balance" -Arlen Specter March 17, 2009. Good riddance. His principles fit in nicely with his new party. Self interest is the only interest. Principles are a non-issue. Words mean nothing. Lie, twist, pander...anything to get a vote. And then turn your back on the very people that provided your ascent. I'd rather the Dems had 95% of Congress, than have one worm like Arlen Specter in my camp. Once again, good riddance.:wave: Nice legacy. Bet the grandkids are proud.
