Sen. Arlen Specter told Pennsylvania's Democratic leaders Saturday he's "pleased and proud" to be back in the party he left shortly after launching his political career more than four decades ago.

"I'm no longer a Republican in name only. I'm again a Democrat," the fifth term senator said in an introductory speech to the Democratic State Committee at a downtown hotel.


  • But there are McAuliffe Democrats and there (Ben) Nelson and there are Dean Democrats... so this really doesn't say much, does it.

  • No. But I thought him mentioning the repeated "Republican in name only" criticism was funny.

  • Well, I guess I see him as a Democrat in name only...

  • Yeah, but that criticism would be new.
