Well, after months of wondering what was going to happen in Washington, DC, and the make-up of the current US Senate, we now have a firm suggestion as to what might happen. Sen. Arlen Spector of Pennsylvania, formerly a Republican, announced Tuesday that he was going to switch from the Republican to the Democratic Party. Spector was a moderate for the Republicans in the senate and one of three Senators a few months ago to vote for the large stimulus package that President Obama pushed for.
Spector's move now puts the Democrats closer to the 60 votes they need to be virtually 'unstoppable,' assuming Al Franken is put in the Senate from Minnesota. Time will tell.
