    This country is screwed. There's no more "center" remaining in politics. Nothing gets done and they all hate each other. Wait until the second part of the recession hits (you didn't think laying off several hundred thousand teachers wouldn't be a hit on the economy, did you?)

    Thumbs up An honorable man of conscience.

    First, Specter switches parties because he can no longer stomach the narrow minded reactionaries the Repubs have become. Then he graciously vows support for Sestak, after losing to him in the Dem primary. Nothing wrong with Sestak, a retired Navy Admiral (with a pretty wife), new blood replacing a veteran. 80 years old. Time to step down.

    I don't really care about Specter, but I assume he could still run as an Independent in the general?

    That'd be interesting.

    Specter switched parties because he saw the writing on the wall for his political future as a Repub, and figured he'd have a better chance of staying in power if he became a Dem. A cynical, selfish move on his part just to keep an office he views as rightly his.

    I'm glad to see his cycnical opportunism was met at the voting booth with the rejection it so richly deserved.Goodbye and good riddance. May many more follow him.

    Sestak is no puffball. I predict he'll go far and wide.
    Beam me up, baby.
