Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform." Can't feel to sorry for him.

Did Specter want to go into the 2010 elections arm in arm with Pres. Obama?

I still don't understand why noone went to jail when his freak middle-aged neocon "staffer" slipped in that language about changing the rules for dismissing and replacing United States Attorneys into whatever bill that was that came out of Arlen's committee and no one knew about it.

Oh look we passed a new law!

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
