Specter Makes His Pitch To PA Democrats

D-Arlen lays out what he has to offer the Democratic party:

Gregory: It was reported this week that when you met with the President, you said, “I will be a loyal Democrat; I support your agenda.” Let me test that on probably one of the most important areas of his agenda and that’s healthcare. Would you support healthcare reform that puts up a government-run public plan to compete with a private plan issued by a private insurance company.

Specter: No. And you misquote me, David. I did not say I would be a loyal Democrat. I did not say that. And last week, after I said I was changing parties, I voted against the budget because the budget has a way to pass healthcare with 51 votes,which undermines a basic Senate institution to require 60 votes to impose cloture on key issues.

Yes, I believe this is just the sort of message that will appeal to PA Democratic primary voters.  ‘Cuz if there’s anything us PA Democrats hate, it’s loyal Democrats.  They ruin everything.

Welcome To The Internets!

And, y’know, some blogs.  (I prefer to believe that this refers to the internets as a whole, rather than contemplate the possible existence of lolpenises)
