‘Mr. President, It’s Arlen. I Could Use Some Help . . . Hello? Hello?’


From Wednesday’s edition of the Morning Jolt:

President Obama “seems unlikely” to visit Pennsylvania to support Arlen Specter in his primary. Specter says nobody guaranteed him a cleared primary, but Rendell was publicly making noises about it in March 2009. One way or another, I’m betting somebody’s word reached their expiration date. And Specter’s Senate career looks likely to reach its own expiration date soon, too.
