Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) may have had a Probability of a Yes Vote of 84% on a climate and clean energy bill to Nate Silver (see “Epic Battle 3: Who are the swing Senators?“).   But others, like E&E News (subs. req’d), had him as a straight fence sitter with the likes of John McCain (R-AZ) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

Now, Specter joins Brown, who says he won’t filibuster climate bill. This is video of Specter from Netroots nation (h/t TPM).

  1. Jim Beacon says:

    In today’s vicious and hate-filled political climate, it takes guts to come out and say something clear and strong like this so far in advance of the event. I’ve always had great respect for Arlen Specter and once again he’s shown that he deserves it.
