Being Arlen Specter
Without going into great detail about Arlen Specter's rather moderate voting record, his stance against Anita Hill, support of the Iraq war or the present power grab, I just wonder if Specter should just simply retire. I fully understand the political move with regards to the 60 vote filibuster proof. But I also wonder why there isn't another Democrat in line to run against the Republican Senate candidate Pat Toomey and win. But it ain't called politics for nothing. I guess I'm just weary of the Old Guard and pure political moves that may or may not support the cause of true democracy. Maybe Senator Specter should simply retire. I don't know. Isn't twenty nine years in the Senate a good run?
