    Good idea. This will help show Pennsylvania voters what a self-serving, unprincipled opportunist Specter is.

    Two party system: Liberal democrats on one side of the aisle, conservative dems on the other. That's a two party system with bipartisanship.

    Nothing has changed except his party (again). Hwe was already a voting member. Anyway, here's a guy who has chosen himself over his constituents.

    Biden should get a lot of credit for getting Spector to join up with the democrats.

    Obama must be thrilled to have 60 votes in the senate. Now the democrats should be trying to pile on and get to 63-65 in 2010 and give themselves a working margin to turn the republicans into a regional party that can't dictate things on the federal level.
