Frist: Specter Must Prove Himself for Post
Advertisements [?]
Sen. Arlen Specter must prove to his Republican colleagues that he is the right man to head the Senate Judiciary Committee in the next Congress, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Sunday.

Specter, R-Pa., will make his case to GOP colleagues this week when Congress returns for a postelection session.

Specter, an abortion-rights supporter, angered conservatives by suggesting after the Nov. 2 election that judicial nominees with anti-abortion views would have a tough time winning Senate confirmation.
...
Frist, R-Tenn., said he expected a chairman to understand that he is responsible "to the feelings, the wishes, the beliefs, the values, the procedures that are held by the majority of that committee."

He added that Specter, as chairman, "has a clear obligation ... to take what the president nominates (and) get that nomination through committee."
