So I’d be curious to hear the tape of what was said.
That said, Specter is trouble, and I wonder if this isn’t an opportunity for the Republican party and conservatives. Imagine the power hehe would have over the issues, the president, and the Senate as judiciary chairman. I think he should step aside for the good of the party–or be made too. He still gets to be a troublemaking senator, but not powerful chairman.
Jon Kyl for chairman. Should I make buttons?
And if Specter leaves the party…I can deal with that. So can the GOP in the Senate. And we won’t have to be reminded he’s a Republican hurting the GOP agenda–which is, based on Tuesday’s results, a conservative one–anymore.
