Tuesday’s Loose Thread

Just saw that Sen. Arlen Specter is switching parties. That means when Al Franken is seated, the Democrats will have a filibuster-proof 60 senators. Specter said:

"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."

Thoughts on this or any other topic?
