  •  However the big difference with Specter (6+ / 0-)

    IIRC is that he didn't start voting the party line until he got a primary challenge.  Crist for a good while now has been telegraphing his move towards the Democrats and seems to know better than other recent party switchers what doesn't work.

    Plus he doesn't have the whole "being a douche over Anita Hill" thing that is what I always think of first with Specter.

    NC-06/NC-04; -9.12, -8.62; Yellow Dog Democrat

      that he changed his tone after burning bridges in his own party and knowing the only way forward was with the dems.  just as arlen thought the only way forward was through the dems.  not the same, but similar.
