    He's not switching parties against his own beliefs. However, the fact he never switched until he started polling 20 points below his opponent in the primary next year shows that it was his future that made him jump now. He was content to be a moderate Republican for 30 years before then.

      He switching parties to survive...it says a lot about the state of the GOP that a Republican senator has to switch to the Dems to remain viable. Steele didn't touch that one.
