WOW..Senator Specter…thank you for the exciting breaking news!

Again, I love my CNN Breaking News…but in all fairness, I did not hear about it first via the email alert but rather the TV.

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter will switch from the Republican to the Democratic Party, multiple sources tell CNN.

Fun Fun Fun!  It really doesn’t mean too much as he would often vote with the Democrats.  I don’t think they can count him to be the 60 vote filibuster proof decision maker on all issues.  I am interested to find out what they promised him to get him to switch.  It also makes sense because he has drawn a conservative Republican challenger  in his re-election campaign.

I am spending the afternoon in the Senate (we are testifying on the Hill) so it should be very interesting!  More later!
