    The contortions Specter goes through are extremely awkward.

    "Absolutely," said Specter. "I joined his team." He added that "when that vote came up on the stimulus, I knew it was the end of my association with the Republican Party. For years they called me a RINO, a 'Republican In Name Only,' because I had voted with the Democrats more often than with the Republicans on the big issues."

    And Specter did admit he had voted for Democratic nominees in the past, like Adlai Stevenson.
