Specter is casting a shadow

Senator Specter (R-PA) is at it again, and the conservatives will likely be up in arms again soon. I wonder if his illness has changed his perspective on issues. Many people when diagnosed with serious ailments start living with a mindset that they should do what they want to do while they can. Maybe that is affecting his judgment here as his comments seem to indicate a backtracking from his agreement with party leaders in early January. I wouldn't blame him for having a new view on his life, but the next few days will show how it may affect his work.
