  •  Specter has always been (7+ / 0-)

    more moderate and unreliable as a vote for the Republican Leadership than the consistently conservative Lugar. The only was Lugar is no longer a conservative is that "conservative" now means "crazy saboteur." Yes, Specter could be vile, such as in the Anita Hill hearings, but politically, he was always better from a Democratic point of view. So unless you're talking about demeanor here, I strongly disagree with you.

    If you're talking about demeanor, then yes, Specter always cut an image as an intellectual but also a prosecutor who could be very vicious, whereas Lugar just comes off as a gentleman you'd enjoy meeting and having a conversation with, and in fact, some people I know who met or worked for him and are liberals like him and respect him very greatly as a person.
