It's almost humorous.

This is major league whoa! Not just for what's going on in the Senate but it's a tsunami for PA politics as a number of Dems have been maneuvering to run for his seat. I expect that if Spector switches the PA Dem committee will shut down any challenges. Wow not good for me personally but hey.
Specter already acknowledged that was the reason, so he can win in the primary and not have opposition against Democrats

Specter: "I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate"

Not true. You haven't read my posts on the nonsense of Rep John Murtha, also of PA. A crook is a crook. Out with them all.

Try to imagine for a moment, just how much careful forgetful mental distortion, how much blinders-wearing doublethink, is required for that.
Wow, couldn't have said it better myself. Excellent.

Rasmussen - yeah, right. As if THEY don't have an axe to grind. Take a look at this snapshot of the site you linked me to.
How many of those ads lean Left?
How many lean Right?

How many of those stories on the right side look like they might be selected because they provide positive news for the Left?
How many for the Right?

Think that Rasmussen might just have a slant they are pushing?
Think maybe that slant might just be reflected in their poll(s)?

Specter is basically just telling the people of Pennsylvania that he doesn't care what they want, he is going to do what is expedient for him so that he can increase his chances of being returned to congress by appreciative democrats instead of being drummed out by angry republicans who feel betrayed by his left wing voting record.
If Specter is "returned to congress" in the general election, then he will have done what the people of Pennsylvania wanted him to do.

If you had voted for Specter based only on the "R" after his name, then you shouldn't feel betrayed, but should feel embarrased that you voted for someone based on party rather than his stance on issues.
