Arlan Specter surprised everyone yesterday by announcing that he was switching to the Democratic party. This was received with much happiness by most Democrats, and gave Michael Steele a chance to prove once again that he never should have even been considered for the RNC Chair position.

Watching this video, though, Specter makes it sound like he only switched parties because he was frustrated with the poor campaign strategy that the Republican party has shown in the last two election cycles.


It could be that it was this poor planning that pushed him over the edge, but I can't imagine this video clip is going to serve him very well in the Democratic primaries. Switching parties just because you don't want to run in the Republican primary race isn't going to go very far with voters.
