    Will Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe be following?

    I don’t think so, Specter switched parties to avoid a tough primary challenge. Meanwhile, Snowe and Collins aren’t facing a tough primary challenge… yet. Though, they might given how small of a tent the GOP has been.

  4. It’s not just Joe. “President Barack Obama welcomed Specter to the White House on Wednesday to celebrate his decision, which Obama said ‘reflects an independence that has been the hallmark of Arlen Specter’s career since the days he arrived in Washington.'” http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D97S56DG0&show_article=1

    Where’s Scoop when you need him?

  5. Specter switched parties because the minority party does not hand out legislative plums.

  6. Specter switched parties….. /blockquote>

    I’m pretty sure he’s still a Democrat.
