Veteran Republican Sen. Arlen Specter disclosed plans Tuesday to switch parties, a move intended to boost his chances of winning re-election next year that will also push Democrats closer to a 60-vote filibuster-resistant majority.
DLR was wondering why would he just up and change sides.. Well it turns out Sen. Specter had that answered also. "I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans,"
And you didn't know this before the election. SMDH!!!! To me this is just a stunt to stay in office. Someone afraid of feeling the recession if he remains on the wrong side of the party.
