Holy crap!

I suppose it was fated, but it's still hard not to feel the earth shudder when Arlen Specter switches parties! That should shake up the picture for the 2010 elections quite a bit; expect new life in the gubenatorial race and rather muted entries for a Senate primary battle with this old warhorse...

Update: I got this very phone call last night (4/29). Completely perplexing -- are they trying to scare me with his Republicanism or annoy me by referring to him as the "new member of the Democrat party"? What on earth is their goal, other than petulance??

Update 2: (5/5) Of course, this is a perhaps inevitable result. Will we end up with something like Ridge versus Sestak? Expect a lot of shifting in this landscape!
