Biden pushed Specter to turn Dem, Rendell says

 

Pennsylvania's Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell - an all-around macher and quote machine - says Joe Biden was part of a recent tag-team effort to get Arlen Specter to switch parties, cable news channel RNN is reporting (h/t TPM).

"We've tried," said Rendell. "Myself, Sen. [Robert P.] Casey, Vice President Biden have tried to talk him into it, but he's bound and determined to stay a Republican."

Taking a step to the right, the moderate Philly Republican told the conservative Pittsburgh Post Gazette that he's skeptical, if still undecided, about the labor-backed Employee Free Choice Act.

"I am well aware of the tradition of secret ballot on political elections and the difficulties of binding arbitration on the conducting of a business, so I'm hearing people on all sides," Specter said.
