    Today, Pennsylvanians go to the polls to elect a new Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The choices, of course, are Arlen Specter and Jon Kyl. This is an excellent opportunity for pro-lifers to show our political strength by solving a long-standing problem. If you live in Pennsylvania, go vote. If you know people in Pennsylvania, remind them how important to cast their votes for the pro-life candidate in this extremely tight race.

    Welcome SIConservative. You'll fit in well with the rest of us pro-lifers(I am a left leaning moderate though).

    Specter's politics put him right in line with Jim Jeffords - another Republican I never liked.

    because he's independent, or not as far right as some would like?

    Because he's not a conservative.

    Given a choice, I would like to see a majority of senators whose political philosophy was economically conservative, in the vein of, say, Newt Gingrich, Phil Gramm, and/or Steve Forbes.

    Specter is 74. He's voted very liberal on many issues. While Bush and Santorum are giving their support as they should due to seniority, Toomey and Santorum would be a good Conservative punch from PA. Both are real Conservatives on the major issues. Tommoey is also 45. I just feel that Lifers in Congress cease to do any good.
