Former Sen. Arlen Specter dead at 82

RIP Sen Specter




I first became aware of him at the time of his chairmanship on the senate judiciary committee, particularly at a time when he clashed with the late Sen Kennedy over Kennedy's frustration that he wasnt being granted fair time to present his case against one of Bush's nominees, Roberts if I recall correctly.


Then, of course, he opted to jump ship from the GOP after supporting Obamas stimulus and hence facing a tough election against now Sen Toomey.


He struck me as a decent man personally, though pretty much epitomized alot of what I find so disgusting about politicians in general.
