Specter = Lieberman

News to no one:

Arlen Specter is not guided by any enduring principles.

In 2001, when Senator Jim Jeffords from Vermont left the Republican Party, Arlen Specter rose from the floor of the Senate to propose a Senate rules change to prevent this from happening again in the future. A Senator's "organizational" vote, Specter said, belongs not to him but to the party which elected him.

12 minutes:

Specter is garbage, and should be accepted as such.

Last night the Dodgers won 1-0 because Russell Martin held up on ball four with the bases loaded: an excellent outcome to a beautiful game.

In politics, beauty is illusory. Only results count. Democrats already have garbage - Lieberman - in their party. One more bag won't hurt them.
