Guess who said this?

In 2001, when Vermont’s Jumpin’ Jim Jeffords switched from the GOP to the Democrats, handing control of the Senate to the Democrats in the process, none other than Arlen Specter decried the move as unethical and unfair to the voters. “I plan to propose a rule change which would preclude a future recurrence of a senator’s change in parties, in midsession, organizing with the opposition, to cause the upheaval which is now resulting,” he said then.”

and in March:  “I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role — a more important role — to play there. I think the United States desperately needs a two-party system. It is the basis of politics in America. I think each of the 41 Republican senators, in a sense, and I don’t want to overstate this, is a national asset, because if one was gone you would only have 40. The Democrats would have 60 and they would control all of the mechanisms of government.” –Sen. Arlen Specter

Not that it matters.  You see, he doesn’t place the rights of the unborn over those of the born, or decry medical research that may save lives.  So the Republicans don’t want him.  It’s called cutting off your nose to spite your face.
