Although he is doing it for political self perservation since he wouldve lost his seat if he ran as a rupblican, alteast he is a moderate with many liberal views so you can argue he was at odds with republicans to begin with (well he used to be a democrat back then before he became a republican). But yea its fun seeing him piss off some of the GOP haha, it sure is going to be an interesting site when he walkes through the senate halls as a democrat. I am sure McCain is going to be itching to not tackle him in the name of preventing filibuster. lol
Feeling like Detriot Red cleaned up!!

In regard to the H1N1 virus: Joe Biden should shut the hell up and play his background position as the VP. Got the press secretary and everyone else paraphrasing/redacting his sentiments. Stay in your lane!

NYC people: justifiably mad, although they need to stop being so scared

Specter: I've always liked him...now even moreso.

Yeah, Specter is a political animal and he's doing this to win the election...but he's a YLS alum (+1 for Specter) and he's always seemed moderate to me. I like him.

This is going to get REALLY interesting.

They've already blocked him on everything so far, so no matter who he picks (Sotomayor perhaps?) this is going to be a friggin circus.  I'm already reading murmurs of a filibuster.

Yeah I love how The Repubes are already talking about the person Obama picks is unnacceptable when he hasn't picked anyone yet- he just confirmed it with Souter like yesterday!

Rule #4,080 why I'll never become president. See, I'd be petty and pick someone like Lani Guinier, Derrick Bell, or Charles Ogletree, and dare what's left of the repubs to block the confirmation.
