SPECTER'S SWITCH ANOTHER SIGN OF DEMOCRATIC COLLAPSE
Progressive Punch, which keeps track of the voting records of members of Congress, gives Specter a low ranking of 37%.
The only issue on which he has voted right more than half the time has been family planning (60%).
And he comes in under 30% on education, the arts, fair taxation (6%), housing, justice, and war & peace.
The Hill, to be sure, reports that some Democrats are mad about Specter joining the party. But it isn't about issues; it's about him leaping ahead of their seniority.
