Benedict Arlen Specter has been ousted by Rep. Joe Sestak in the Democratic Primary. This is the end of an error- a big error. He is a political opportunist who deserved to lose in this primary.
From The Politico: "It's been a great privilege to serve the people of Pennsylvania," Specter said with a pained voice to a small but appreciative audience that chanted his first name at the beginning and end of his remarks at his election night headquarters.
He didn't serve the voters of Pennsylvania's interests but rather his own selfish interests. Good riddance, Snarlen Arlen. Specter retiring is one of the best things to happen to Pennsylvania in a long while.
