Via Jim Geraghty, I see a new poll showing that Sen. Arlen Specter now finds himself tied with Joe Sestak in the Democratic primary. Even though Specter brings a number of advantages over Sestak in a general election — organization, fundraising base, history of winning statewide, etc.), like Geraghty, I’ve always thought that Sestak would ultimately pose a stronger challenge to Republican Pat Toomey. In an anti-incumbent year, Specter epitomizes the sort of opportunistic politician that the public is fed up with. Toomey could win over non-ideological voters by portraying Specter as a creature of Washington who will do anything to cling to power. Toomey would still be able to present a clear contrast with Sestak at a time when voters are disenchanted with the Obama agenda, but the anti-incumbent line of attack would be weakened.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
