John Deeth Blog: Specter joins Dems

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

"Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the
Republican Party has moved far to the right. Last year, more than
200,000 Republicans in Pennsylvania changed their registration to
become Democrats. I now find my political philosophy more in line with
Democrats than Republicans." ... So welcome aboard, Senator Specter.
You're one of us now, and we expect you to vote accordingly. Another
way this gets us closer to 60: without a new Senate organizing
resolution, Specter keeps his committee seats -- seats which come out
of the GOP's share. And the Democrats could put a big condition on
that re-organizing resolution: seating Senator Franken. Specter
referred to Reagan's big tent, and while he doesn't explicitly say
that the big tent is Obama's now his action says so loudly.
