Specter: Might have helped the country if I'd stayed GOP

A year after he switched parties, Arlen Specter gives us this gem:

"Well, I probably shouldn't say this," he said over lunch last month. ''But I have thought from time to time that I might have helped the country more if I'd stayed a Republican.''

Specter mused that perhaps if he'd remained in the caucus he could have persuaded one or two of his GOP colleagues to support health care reform. Not one Senate Republican voted in favor of it, but he swears he would have regardless of party affiliation.
