Why Arlen Specter became a Democrat again

I’m not sold that it was because the Republican party left him and the Democratic party better reflected his ideals. I think it was solely for convenience.

Again, I’m not a huge fan of polls, but this article is something to think about: while a GOP member, Specter was in danger of being ousted by conservative Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania primaries. Now, as a Democrat he holds a 20-point lead.

In other words, it has zero to do with principle but everything to do with power.

I sincerely hope the GOP is able to oust Specter. As for the Democrats, beware if the tide changes and it becomes more expedient for Specter to be a Republican again…
