Senate race highlights GOP divide | csmonitor.com
Given that it would give a good chance for Dems to take the Senate, and thereby ensure a split govt, in case Bush wins, I would normally have hoped for a Toomey win. However, the stakes are higher here. The presence of moderates like Specter, Chuck Hagel (R-Neb), and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) is important for the GOP.
Moderates in both parties have become an endangered species, which only weakens the democratic system. So, I would be hoping for a Specter win in the primaries - even if it means Dems losing the seat in fall.
