You don't need a weatherman to know which way this wind is blowing: To the right! Fair-weather friend Rick Santorum has decided that looking good for all his ultra-conservative buds is more important than his former longtime political partnership with his one-time Senate pal Arlen Specter:
In 2004, President Bush and a Senate colleague from Western Pennsylvania made the difference for Specter. Those dogs don't hunt anymore. This year, his help may come from Peg Luksic, Larry Murphy, and anyone else who helps split up the vote next spring - anyone other than Pat Toomey, that is.
It will be fun to watch. And watch I will.
