Specter Seeks to Placate Union Bosses

From AP:

At an AFL-CIO rally outside the hotel Saturday morning, Specter drew cheers and scattered catcalls when he told the crowd of more than 200 people that he is working with organized labor to try to reach a compromise on a bill that would make it easier for workers to form unions.

“I’m committed to find an answer which will satisfy you,” he told the crowd.

Specter had publicly opposed the measure before switching to the Democratic Party in April. Pennsylvania AFL-CIO President Bill George reminded the demonstrators that Specter has often been on their side on many issues important to labor.

“Over the years we’ve had our ups and downs with Arlen Specter, but I have to tell you, on a lot of bread and butter issues (important) to organized labor … he was there,” George said.

Is there any doubt that the weak-kneed Senator will flop-flop before primary season begins?
