Oh please, let it be so:
CBS chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer is now saying that he has it on good authority that the White House is privately bracing for Arlen Specter to lose tomorrow.
Two positives here:
1. The Senate can rid itself of one of its least-principled members (an arena where that's no piddling distinction).
2. The White House can get a sharp reminder to choose its friends more wisely.
