Sen. Arlen Specter to switch parties, become Democrat

This could be the political news of the day. The Washington Post is reporting that Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania intends to switch parties and become a Democrat. The switch puts Democrats closer to 60-vote control in the U.S. Senate.

Specter is a 79-year-old veteran of five Senate terms, and one of only a handful of moderate Republicans left in Congress in a party made up largely of conservatives. Click here for details.
