Specter and magical thinking
Specter first thinks he'll be re-elected as a Democrat. Second, he thinks that Democrats will keep *hic* their promises.
Specter plays down loss of committee seniority
Specter shows amazing confidence that his backstabbing he handed the Democrats won't be repaid, explains how his betrayal of fellow RHINO's was well planned as Sen. Reid (whose well earned Rush-nickname is Dingy):
"my seniority will be maintained under the arrangement I worked out with" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., before switching.
Before switching... Did you get that in writing? Why don't you call some of his fiends [sic] in Vegas and find out why you might consider that.
"I think everyone should just kind of relax and understand he's a Democrat," Reid said. "We're doing our best to try to make him happy as a Democrat. I think he is."
