Specter in Re-election Trouble?

Republicans don't learn their lessons. It does not pay to be Democrat-lite. Arlen Specter is not getting high ratings related to his re-election prospects. And we can guarantee that voters won't be any happier with his decision to support the spending bill.

I can already see the opposition ads: "How can anyone claim to be responsible by voting for an $800 billion big government spending bill?" Democrats are virtually guaranteed to attack him from the right (even though every Democrat in the Senate voted for the bill also).
