John Deeth Blog: All Specter all the time

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

I'm in six days to election busy mode so haven't had as much time to
dig into the Specter stuff (or for that matter the end of the
Legislative session) as I'd like. With all my rambling on seniority I
can't believe I missed the Tom Harkin angle, but Bleeding Heartland
has it covered. And apparently Vice President Joe is the guy who made
this happen, with five years of serious work and groundwork going all
the way back to the Robert Bork hearings. Biden is more a Man Of The
Senate than any VP since LBJ; you don't spend 36 years in an
institution like that without leaving some mark. And now it seems
Biden may have even more influence on the Senate than Johnson did, in
part because he's been just deferential enough (whereas LBJ tried to
keep running the Senate and was quickly shot down.)
