A Democrat is born

Wow, wasn't expecting this: Arlen Specter has switched parties and is now a Democrat. Vice President Biden has been lobbying Specter to make the change; Specter faced a tough GOP primary next year from a rightwing challenger. President Obama promised to support Specter in his Democratic run.

I've always respected Specter's moderate voice in the Senate. Too bad that the Republican Party no longer has room for anyone with such a mindset.

Incidentally, this particular Democrat was actually born a long time ago. Specter started out as a Dem and switched parties the first time back in the '60s.
