Oh Dang! Specter may tack Right

Defeated Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA), who won’t be coming back to the Senate after this session is hinting that he may begin voting more like a Republican than a Democrat:

…several longtime friends and associates tell The Daily Beast that without a primary challenge to pressure him, the veteran senator – a famously prickly character whose temper has earned him the nickname “Snarlin’ Arlen” – may shift to the right

The big question seems to be, will Specter vote for Elena Kagan’s confirmation? Of course he will. Duh!
