Can We Keep Him Out?

Arlen Specter, the Senator from Pennsylvania, has announced that he is leaving the Republican Party and becoming a Democrat. He noted that some 200,000 of his fellow Pennsylvanians have become Democrats and, I guess, decided to follow along--so much for his claim to "maverick" status. Just following the crowd. But do Democrats really want him? Can we tell him that he can't join--that we don't want someone who doesn't support the Employee Free Choice Act--or are we stuck taking any politician with his finger in the wind?

Although it would be hard to distinguish him from any number of people who've been Democrats all their careers.
