    The message to the 80 year old is going to be music to my ears.
    It is well past time for the incumbant to go.
    AS is just what we don't need in Goverment today
    The tide is changeing and it is for the better

    He's younger and he can help the Democrats hold this seat for the next 18 / 24 years.

    Plus he's more liberal than the [former] Republican Specter.

    Enjoy the Iraq war and the Republican tax cuts for the wealthy that you voted for Specter.

    What a shame for the state of PA. Arlen Specter was a great senator. I say to those who want someone new, be careful what you wish for. Arlen Specter really cared about PA.
