Arlen Specter, Political Hack...Excuse Me For Being Redundant...

Is anyone else totally sick of Arlen Specter? Why is he the Chair of the Judiciary Committee during a conservative Administration when we need every vote on that committee and in the Senate to be solidly with the president?

Specter is the Sandra Day O'Connor of the Senate...he loves the limelight of controlling (and destroying) conservative judicial nominees in the same way that Sandy-Baby loved controlling the direction of the Court...and now we're going to have to endure the tedium of looking at his ugly mug once again and listening to his nasal whine as he pretends to know more about Constitutional law than an experienced jurist. I predict that, unless the President either nominates a liberal (I'll just call it what it is and not pretend Specter wants a "moderate"), or has something he can use to force Specter to play ball on the right team, Specter will not hesitate to vote with the Democrats and lead a Charge of the Lightweight Brigade in the Republican party to stop his own President from exercising his Constitutional prerogative to choose members of the Supreme Court.

Having lived in a state where Specter was one of my senators and another state where Hillary Clinton and Chucky Schumer were my senators, I can tell you that they are three of a kind...their position on any issue can be predicted by gauging its effect on their political ambitions...but at least with Chucky and Hillary they are upfront about being liberal nits.
