There are so many sweet memories – the single bullet theory, Anita Hill and many others. I hope my readers will post them.
But my favorite – as promised – is his little stunt in 2001: trying a second impeachment of Clinton
Senator Arlen Specter suggested Sunday morning that if Congress learns that ex-President Clinton is guilty of criminal conduct in Pardongate, he could be impeached all over again. The leading Senate Judiciary Committee Republican said that if Clinton is convicted in a Pardongate Senate trial, he could lose his presidential pension, his Secret Service protection and even his presidential library trust fund. He also hinted that the House of Representatives would soon consider such a move.
.Oh, the humanity! Specter is outta here and Clinton still has secret Service protection…
What’s your favorite Specter memory?
This is obviously a schadenfreude post
. In a way, Obama played this really well… they sucked Specter in, got him to caucas Dem, then…..
watched as he went down to someone else with little effort done on their part.
Specter was already unelectable as a Republican anyways. They sort of backed him. But not really.
It doesn’t explain why Obama was robocalling for Specter last week.
Obama wanted Specter to win.
It Was Part of the Deal
For his defection. Specter is a worm. How funny that he switched parties to avoid losing in the primary.
Kind of funny spin.
How many times had Obama lost face now, throwing his support behind these shitty “moderate” corporatist candidates?
and Chris Mathews and Howard Fineman are devastated…
…that Sestak and Critz, who won Murtha’s old seat, won tonight!
