If he had an ounce of integrity, he would have run in the Republican primary, and when he lost he would have become an Independent and run that way. That is what Joe Lieberman (a man w/ real integrity) did in '08, and I respect him for that. Spector's decision to bolt the party now, and then publicly disrespect the party he has bragged about for decades, is nothing more than a cynical partisan power play, and I could not disrespect him more! He wouldn't know integrity if it bit him in the ass!!
Do I sense a little bitterness?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
