  •  Well, Nate Silver had an interesting article (0+ / 0-)

    a while ago suggesting that progressives might want to look again.  Titled, "Is Sestak the right choice for the left?".  Located here at 538.  It was written back in May but is worth thinking about.  I was interested in the fact that Progressive Punch ranks Sestak as the 158th most progressive out of 221 (non freshman democrats).

    I agree that Sestak is  fooling people and think that Specter has been a closet Democrat all along.  I want to see what he is doing for us continue.  He has no reason to pretend anymore.

      for the last 28 years, why didn't he just switch parties?  A Democrat can get elected to a Senate seat in PA.

      •  I know. But, you know how people are. It's the (0+ / 0-)

        old flip flop thing.  His base has always been moderate democrats.  He had to slink to the right to get elected but did well in the general.  Yes, remember when there was nothing worse than being a flip flopper.  Those were the days.
