It's lonely out in the cold, Arlen
The Obama administration has utterly abandoned the laughably pathetic Arlen Specter in anticipation of his much-deserved primary defeat to challenger Joe Sestak. Obama isn't making any last-minute campaign speeches and even though Joe Biden is speaking at his daughters graduation in Pennsylvania, he won't be doing anything on Specter's behalf.
Electorally, Obama has ridden every candidate he's endorsed to a resounding defeat and he doesn't want to be associated in any way with what we hope is a fitting, inglorious end to Specter's checkered political career. I know of no astute political observers who didn't see this coming the day Specter decided to switch parties in desperation to save his career. As much as it is a service to the nation to have craven carrerists like Arlen Specter out of the congress.....it's more valuable as entertainment to watch him crash and burn because of his naked ambition and fecklessness.
Good riddance, Arlen.
