Somehow the words "suitably chastened" and Arlen Spector to me don’t go together. I guess time will tell.
Sen. Harry Reid the new minority leader who has been reported as being pro-life starts out by warning Republicans about a rule change to a simple majority on cloture instead of the sixty vote super majority now used. So the first act of a pro-life Senator is to warn against changing the rules that so far have prevented pro-life judges from reaching federal courts and especially circuit courts of appeal. We will just have to wait to see which one wins out – pro-life sympathies or party loyalty.
