John Deeth Blog: Grassley's priorities: Helping his Senate buddy

Excerpted from this post at BLOGNAME

CQ writes: "Charles E. Grassley is thinking about passing up the top
spot on a committee he really likes in order to help colleague Arlen
Specter." ... Of course, they both have to get re-elected before they
play musical chairs. Specter needs all the help he can get, pinned
between a primary challenge from the right and outrage from his
sometime allies in labor after he flip-flopped on card check. On the
other hand, I'd rather have Specter as the top Republican on Judiciary
when a Supreme Court nomination rolls around than non-lawyer Grassley.
