  •  Honestly...we are getting much (4+ / 0-)

    better signals from Specter after a switch...

    You may be pleasantly surprised if Snowe actually switched.  It could free her up.  I certainly would expect her to swing to the left of a McCaskill or Bayh, much less Nelson, Landrieu and Lincoln.

    Her switch would actually be helpful.

    •  Wait till after the election. If Specter wins (0+ / 0-)

      he'll be back to supporting his real constituents. - His corporate masters.

      Politicians should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we can identify their corporate sponsors.

    •  no, i think she needs to stay a republican (0+ / 0-)

      as long as we can work with her.  if she does become a democrat, the media will still be obsessed with bipartisanship, conservadems like ben nelson will still freak out if there aren't republicans on board, and then we'll have to negotiating with collins or whoever the least wing-nutty republican would be.  in other words, i think legislation will be get watered down more if she becomes a democrat.
