1. Sestak likely knows Specter didn't cross the aisle entirely of his own volition
but rather with the blessing and knowledge of the White House.

If I were a Pennsylvania voter and the choice between the two were offered on a primary ballot, I'm going with Sestak.

But I think the ripple buzz suggests that Arlen sails unchallenged to the Dem nom in that race.
