    Because if Franken ever gets the nod the Dems will be at 60 in the Senate. That's how. Looking good or bad went out the window decades ago. Now it's about getting things done. Should it work out, Specter's defection gives the Dems a very hefty dose of political power on the Hill.

    And seriously, how does this make us look "bad?" He joined the Dems, big deal. Both sides have jerks. Specter does nothing to detract from the Democratic party.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    Remember now, he has stated he is not going to change how he votes, so this changes the democratic vote total in the senate by nothing. No power gain, period, if he votes the same way as always, as he claims. If he votes the same way, the "D" next to his name is as meaningless as the "R" would be.

    The reason I say it looks bad is that being a democrat should mean you believe certain things(cue our right wing friends with a few snide comments about what those beliefs are), that you hold certain ideas. Being a democrat should not mean this is the party that you have to be to win an election, so that is what you will be. He says he has issues with the republican party, and his voting record does kinda reflect that, but he voted with republicans 67.1 % of the time based on best numbers I can find(source. What does it say of a party that we would welcome some one who says he will continue to vote against us more than for us? it just makes us look foolish.
