    the time, and certainly not necessarily for key legislation.  He changed to Dem purely for the sake of his own political hide.  Yes, nominally he's now a Dem.  But I don't see Dems being guaranteed any sort of "total authority to do whatever they want".

    Sheesh.  Yeah, it was big news that Specter changed parties, but he ain't gonna vote with the Dems for any reasons other than what satisfies the folks who own him.  And did they change priorities and demands, when he changed parties?
