The Phila Daily News calls on Arlen Specter to save the Senate from itself by voting against a rule change threatened in that body (ending the filibuster; the so-called nuclear option). Of course, everybody can count the votes, so the heat from the spotlight on the handful of moderate or undecided Republicans must be getting fairly intense. Conscience, or political survival? Best of luck, Arlen.
