In the first place, nobody can seriously believe that a wizened con man like Bill Clinton would agree to offer such rotten bait to a deep-water fish like Sestak, a former three-star admiral. [...] As a sitting member of Congress, Sestak was barred from serving on such a federal panel and thus would have been required not only to give up his Specter challenge but also his House seat in order to agree to the White House offer.
We're now in the middle of perhaps the most incompetent cover-up since Watergate.Rahm may have to throw Obama under the bus to save himself.
My theory is that Karl Rove engineered Arlen Specter's switch to the Democratic party as a way to lure Obama into this fiasco. Bill Clinton played along only to spring the trap, which may ultimately allow Hillary make another run in 2012. (Just kidding. :-)
