Episode 35 – Specter the Defector, Souter the Straight-Shooter


An amazing contrast in substance and style: Republican-turned-Democrat Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter. In this episode, Glenn explains why he’s upset with Specter’s switch, proving Specter’s political expediency and shameless acts of self-preservation. Jeff wonders why Specter didn’t become an Independent until the election, and then run as a Democrat. If he was elected as a Republican, he should complete his term as a Republican. Souter, on the other hand, offers an example of how to leave an office with dignity and respect. Jeff, who worked for Sen. Biden during the Souter nomination hearing, offers his unique personal insights on Justice Souter and the nomination process. Showing that they don’t lack substance of their own, the PoliTalk boys tackle an intense discussion of the Government of Pakistan’s role in the resurgence of the Taliban inside its borders.
