    Obama promised to help the guy out, but he said nothing about the Primary, and he said nothing about HOW MUCH help.

    The only question that confronts him is whether he wants ten thousand volunteers and 100,000 donors spending their efforts trying to take down this Republican in a Democratic Primary....

    Or using all that effort to elect a Democrat in the General.

    A year is a long time.  A long time for Specter to piss off Labor, which is a bigger force in PA than even Rendell.

    Crush the Horror.

      i can't imagine obama and rahm would be such wusses that they would actually go to bat for specter if he screws them on cabinet and judicial nominations and big-ticket legislation.

      somebody needs to explain the "facts of life" in the democratic party to senator specter, and soon.
