No more filibusters?

Arlen Specter for Senate 2010

“I have decided to run for re-election in 2010 in the Democratic primary.”

He says he won’t be an automatic vote for cloture… but you have to think that he’d be a whole lot more likely to vote for it. If nothing else, he doesn’t want a big primary fight, which is what will happen if he acts too Republican.

    I can’t cite this but one quote making the rounds is of Harry Reid (before the switch) saying “Arlen’s always there for us… except when we need him.” It’ll likely be more of the same.
