    Default Senator Arlen Specter to switch parties, become Democrat

    Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter will switch his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat, according to sources informed of the decision. Specter's decision would give Democrats a 60 seat filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, assuming Democrat Al Franken is eventually sworn in as the next senator from Minnesota. (Former senator Norm Coleman is appealing Franken's victory in the state Supreme Court.)
    Specter as a Democrat would also fundamentally alter the 2010 calculus in Pennsylvania, as he was expected to face a difficult primary challenge next year from former represenative Pat Toomey. The only announced Democrat in the race is former National Constitution Center head Joe Torsella, although several other candidates are looking at the race.

    Holy shit. Specter, a Democrat?

    I guess the GOP has become that toxic that people are jumping ship.

    Yeah, watching CNN...he says the party no longer "represents him". Now, with Franken, they'll have 60 seats in Congress.

    Franken hasn't been seated yet, and even then the blue dog "centrist" dems (ie: rethug asslickers) will keep the dems from ever having a veto proof majority anyway

    Specter switched because he was going to lose in the GOP primary for his seat.

    True. But it's another smack in the face to the GOP.

    He might be handy, but I don't think he can be trusted!! It is a slap in their faces, and they are tripping over themselves with this...

    Yeah, I don't think he can be trusted either, since he's just trying to save his own hide. But he may come in handy down the road, especially since he'll be seen as a turncoat to the GOP.

    Arlen has long been a thorn in the side of our PA Republicans because he is so liberal. It is about time he switches. He would have had a close run with Toomey (Mr Pro-Life right wingnut) but most likely would have won in the end.

    Arlen "Magic Bullet" Specter belongs in the Democratic Party with the rest of the spineless, wishy washy pussies.
